The library is offering the service Freegal, which allows users to download three songs in mp3 file format each week from the library's website. The music you download is yours to keep. Freegal is a downloadable music service, like iTunes, available from Carnegie Public Library. Your access to the Sony Music Entertainment catalog offers hundreds of thousands of songs, more than 100 genres of music, and more than 50 record labels. No special software is needed to use the service, and there are no digital rights management restrictions. Click on the Freegal icon to get started. Enter your library card number and your PIN, the last 4 digits of your phone number.
Did you know that you can receive email or text notifications of requests that have arrived for you to pick up or when your books are almost due (or overdue)? (If you do not have “text messaging” as part of your service you may be charged by your cell phone provider for the text message.) Just stop in or call and we can add your cell phone number or email to our system. You will not be able to reply to the message and the text message is brief. For example: Courtesy Notice for items due soon at your Library. Can't decide which you would rather have? Give us both contacts and you will get a brief text and a more detailed email. We hope you will sign up for this great service.
Do you or someone you know have an eBook reader or tablet? Point them in the direction of the library. The Carnegie Public Library offers you best-selling and classic audiobooks, eBooks, music, and video available 24/7 from the library’s eBook catalog, http://ohdbks.lib.overdrive.com/ or http://ohioebooks.org.
You can browse the collection, check out with your library card, and download to PC, Mac®, and many mobile devices. To get started, you will need to install free software. For audiobooks, music, and video: OverDrive® Media Console™. To read eBooks, you’ll need Adobe® Digital Editions. Kindles do not need software but be sure to choose the Kindle titles in the collection and often you will need a cable to connect your Kindle to a computer (you will need to log into your Amazon account). Titles can be enjoyed immediately or transferred to a variety of devices, including iPod®, Sony® Reader™, and many others. Some audio titles can also be burned to CD to listen on-the-go. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees.
