With Freegal, you can download 6 songs per week, or stream 3 hours of music per day.
Usually, you can stream a song, or download it (and keep it forever) or both.
Some songs you can only stream. Here’s how you can tell:
When you click the three horizontal lines, to the right of the title of a song, you’ll see a pop-up box.
Freegal – a song you can only stream
If the box has 2 choices: “Add to Playlist” and “Add to Wishlist”, that means you can only stream that song, using the blue arrow to the left of the title.
If you click the three lines and…
A Freegal song you can both stream and download
the box has THREE choices: “Download Now”, “Add to Playlist” and “Add to Wishlist”, that means you can both stream AND download that song.
Why are some songs different? The song’s publisher decides what you can do with that song. They’re the ones who decide if you can ONLY stream the song, or both stream AND download the song.
Q: I am not receiving a new password or the one I have received is not working
A: If you are not receiving an email from Zinio in your inbox, please make sure to check your junkmail or spam folder. If you still cannot locate the password reset email there, please call 888.946.4666 for prompt assistance. Our hours of support are M-F, 7am-6pm Pacific.
If you have received a password reset email but it is not being accepted, please make sure that if you are copying and pasting the password you are not highlighting an extra space after the password. Pasting the password with the extra space will add an extra character when trying to change your password. If you are manually typing the password, please note that the password is case-sensistive, which means that you will need to type upper and lower-case letters, as necessary.
If you are upgrading to Internet Explorer 11, make sure you use the recommended settings when you first launch it.

Please note:As of May 19, 2014, hoopla streaming movies does not work with IE 11.
Where you recently issued a new library card number?
If so,the title on hold may have been associated with the old library card number. Don’t worry, we can take care of it! A member of the Virtual Library team can add your new library card number to your eMedia account and re-do the hold so you are number 1 again. To contact our Virtual Library team call us Monday – Friday at 702.507.6300 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. or send us an eMail at email@example.com.
We will need your new Library card number, your name, email address and the title of the book you had on hold.
If your library card number has not changed then it’s possible your email provider has blocked the notification. Whitelisting (non-spam) our sender email address firstname.lastname@example.org should help ensure this does not occur in the future.
