From Freegal's FAQs:
How do I get the songs into iTunes?
The easiest thing to do is to download the files to your desktop or your music folder. Import the song into iTunes by either dragging the song into the window or importing it from the menu. Presto, the song is now added into your library with all album art! Next time you synch up, you will see that song in your music library.
How do I get the songs into Windows Media Player?
If the song does not open directly into Windows Media Player, simply launch Windows Media Player then click and drag the song into the Windows Media Player window or simply Select: File - Import File. To select multiple songs Select: File - Import Folder. Select the file(s) you wish to add then click OK. The song will now appear in your Windows Media Player library.

Learning a new language with Mango Languages is free for all library patrons, and offers a fast and convenient solution for our community’s increasing language-learning needs. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates components of vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture. Users learn actual conversation, breaking down complex linguistic elements within an audio-visual framework that draws important connections and builds on information they have already learned.
Mango is available in two versions. One is Mango Complete, a 100-lesson course that is designed to provide a deep understanding of a language and its culture. The second is Mango Basic, which teaches everyday greetings, goodbyes and helpful phrases in a short period of time and is designed to appeal to a beginner in a new language. There are more than 40 foreign language courses available and 16 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.

We have started having The Review digitized so that it is available online. There are many rolls of microfilm to digitize so it will be an long, ongoing project. The first ten rolls have been added to a website: http://carnegie.advantage-preservation.com . The dates are May 1, 2007-December 21, 2008.
We will add more dates as we can afford them. Donations to help with the project would be greatly welcomed as it costs $90 to have a roll digitized and added to the website. Any donation amount is welcomed and may be sent to the Carnegie Public Library, 219 E 4th St, East Liverpool, OH 43920, Attn: Mary Deem.
