*NEW* Online Resource

Freegal is a free downloadable music service from your library. 

All you need is your High Plains Library District library card number and PIN. 

Access hundreds of thousands of songs, over 100 genres of music, and multiple record labels, all without having to download software or have any digital rights management (DRM) issues to deal with. 

Access to Freegal is limited to patrons of the High Plains Library District. Each patron library card is allowed 5 free song downloads per week. 

Once you download the files they are yours to keep. The files don't expire and won't disappear unless you choose to delete them.

A download usage counter is located in the upper right corner of freegalmusic.com displaying your weekly allotment. For instance, 1/5 means that you have a weekly limit of 5 downloads, and you have used 1 of those downloads. The download counter resets each week at Monday 12:01 AM (Eastern Time, USA).

One of the great new additions to Freegal Music is the rich and growing collection of music videos.  These videos often have supplemental content that is not in the underlying song, and some of these videos are historical treasures.


New content will be added weekly. Here are a few things we’d like you to know about the videos:

There are approximately 15,000 videos for you to choose from.

As a video is premium content, a video download will count as 2 of your weekly music selections.  If you do not have 2 downloads left, you will not be able to download a video. 

The videos are in MP4 format, and are yours to keep.  

The videos are large files and we recommend that you be connected to a wifi network or cable while downloading.


Mobile users, start with the Freegal App from your App Store and follow the prompts to get music on your device.
