Check and make sure you are entering all 12 digits of your library card number, located above the barcode on your library card. If you are still having problems, please call the library at 502-352-2665 for assistance.
How many songs can I download?
Each account is allowed three downloads per week. When you log in to your Freegal account, a counter at the top of the page lists the number of downloads you have used for the current week. Each week begins at midnight on Sunday.
