MERRILLVILLE |  Lake County Public Library, 1919 W. 81st Ave., offers a service where resident cardholders can use their library card to download three free songs a week.

This program, called Freegal, and the service makes more than 400,000 songs available for free download from the Sony Music Entertainment catalog, which has more than 50 labels.

Each Monday morning, the counter will reset and patrons will be able to download three more songs and transfer the songs to various devices and/or burn to a CD.

There is no waiting list for popular titles, no late fees, and no date due to worry about.

Patrons can access the site at and review the "Helpful Tips" to get started.
