What do I need to access ?

To access Freegal Music, you must have a valid Bartlett Public Library District Card. You will need your barcode and password. Unless you changed it, your password is a default we set for you. It’s a 4-digit PIN, based on your birthday. It’s the two numbers of your birth month, and the LAST two digits of your birth year. So if you were born in April of 1973, your password would be 0473.
