Freegal is a downloadable music service that offers access to approximately 3 million songs, including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists. There is no software to download and there are no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions, so you get to keep the songs you download. You may download using your computer or the Apple or Android app. Just search for “Freegal Music” in the App Store or Google Play store. Cardholders may download three songs per week. (Fort Worth residents only)
OverDrive offers a wide selection of the most popular fiction authors and bestselling nonfiction titles in audiobook and eBook formats, as well as a wide variety of videos. (Fort Worth Residents only)
OverDrive also provides access to hundreds of titles that you can download for free and keep for as long as you like — you don't even have to check them out.
If you're not quite sure how all of this works, just sign up for one of our free classes. We'll teach you how to download and transfer our audiobooks or eBooks to your device. We have also created this guide that you can download as well.
Per the terms of our agreement with OverDrive, access to the Fort Worth Digital Library is limited to Fort Worth resident cardholders only. If you are a member of the MetrOPAC libraries of Benbrook Public Library, Burleson Public Library, Haltom City Public Library or Keller Public Library, you may be able to access Overdrive here.

Disney Online Books are colorful, interactive eBooks that are both fun and educational. Your mouse pointer turns into a 'magic pen' that reads words aloud with a click. You can look up words in the dictionary or take trivia challenges without losing your place in a book. Disney Online Books can be enjoyed on your computer using a browser that supports Adobe Flash. They are not compatible with most mobile devices.
NetLibrary eBooks are now EBSCO eBooks! Our TexShare EBSCO eBooks collection contains over 27,000 titles and may now be searched in conjunction with other EBSCO database products such as Academic Search Complete. Due to licensing agreements, eBooks in our TexShare collection will not be downloadable to a computer or portable reader. You simply view the book on your computer screen - no checkout necessary.
