Things You Never Knew About Your Library

Tools/Resources/Services

Commercial-free streaming music? Yeah I want that!

Freegal Music lets you stream music from hundreds of artists in over 200 genres in the Sony Music catalog for free with no commercials!  All you have to do is sign in with your BCPL library card on the Freegal app (Google Play) or visit BCPL’s website.


Stream whole albums using the Stream button on the album page.


Listen to a pre-built playlist built on themes, artists or even playlists built by BCPL Staff!


Build and save your own custom playlists!  Try it now by following these easy steps:

Choose a song you want to add.  Click on the three dots on the right to pull up the menu.  Then tap Add to Streaming Playlist.

Tap on + Create Streaming Playlist. Give a title and description to your new playlist.  Then hit Create.

Now you can use Search to find songs and add them to the playlist directly from the search results.

Or if you come across a song you want to add to a playlist while actively listening to it, you can tap Add to Playlist at the bottom of the screen.

To access your playlist, tap on My Music at the bottom of the screen and then Playlists in the top menu bar.


With over 15 million+ songs to choose from, you’re sure to find something you’ll love to listen to in Freegal!

If streaming is not an option for you due to the demands it will put on your data, you don’t have to miss out on the music.  Your BCPL card also lets you download 5 songs a week from Freegal as MP3s that are yours to keep forever!

Freegal is just one thing you can access for free with your BCPL library card – check out our other digital services.
