Answer

If the song didn't download completely, you can simply restart your download. 

Freegal does not count the download of a song more than once against your three per week limit. 

In fact, you can re-download any song again during the same week of the initial download or during the following week, without it counting against your limit of 5.  You might want to download a song to your computer after you have downloaded it to the Freegal app, for example. (Freegal's weeks start early Monday morning.  Thus, if 2 Monday mornings have gone by, your song will no longer be available for download.)

To re-download, you may have to close Freegal, clear the cache on your browser, and sign in to Freegal again.  Click the "Recent Downloads" link.

    Live Chat

    Using this service you may be chatting with MCPL librarians or librarians at other libraries. All librarians will assist you and, if needed, refer your question, to MCPL librarians.

    For more than a decade, Montgomery County Public Libraries has offered a live, digital chat reference service. Developed by MCPL staff in 2002, with just a chat box on the main webpage, we quickly expanded to include chat reference options that could be accessed across the website and even in the catalog. This year the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative, of which MCPL is a member, began providing the same type of chat reference service to all its participating members. We are pleased to announce that, by joining forces with the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative - a network of librarians worldwide - MCPL will continue to support our community with the same quality chat reference service that we have offered for the last 11 years, but it will now be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We look forward to continuing our reference chats!
