Cleveland Library Patrons Enjoy Free Music Downloads
Posted: December 27, 2011
CLEVELAND (AP) -- A program that allows patrons of Cleveland-area libraries to download three free music files a week is growing in popularity.

Amy Pawlowski, the Cleveland library’s web applications manager, said the program is bringing back long-lost patrons and drawing new ones, especially people in their 20s and 30s without children.

The Plain Dealer reported Monday that the MyTunes program has grown quickly since the service started in July for patrons of Cleveland and 10 other local libraries.

Patrons are downloading about 5,900 songs per month, mostly pop and rock, but with also a little classical, country and international music.

The program, operated for the library by Freegal Music Service, is expanding to reach 26 of 36 partners in the Clevnet library consortium.
