Vermilion Parish Library has joined Library Ideas™ network of Public Library websites that offer access to over 7 million songs including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists.

Under the terms of the agreement, Vermilion Parish Library registered card holders can download 3 downloads of Freegal Music tracks in the MP3 format each week  at no direct cost via www.vermilion.lib.la.us.

The Freegal Music Service has free mobile apps for Vermilion Parish Library cardholders.  The Freegal Music apps are available in the Apple® App Store and Google Play®.

“We are very excited to offer a service like this that delivers great music, compatibility with lots of devices and simplicity of use.  We think this will be incredibly popular with our patrons and will help the library in marketing all its services to the community,” said Library Director Charlotte Trosclair.

“Sony Music has an incredibly expansive and popular catalog and we are really excited to partner with them on this, a very important product for libraries,” said Brian Downing, co-founder of Library Ideas. “The participation of so many leading independent labels will also help the library reach as many patron groups as possible.”

Through www.vermilion.lib.la.us, patrons with a valid library card will have  access to free music downloads. All you need to get started are the last 8 digits of your valid library card. Your account must be fine free in order to download the music.  For more information on how to access this free service call 337-893-2674 or visit your local library.
