Marlene's App of the Month

Each month, Marlene, our digital librarian, recommends a free app. This month's choice is YouTube Music. Marlene says: "YouTube Music lets you watch and listen to your favorite tracks, albums, and artists for free. Enjoy new artists and classic favorites. This is your source to watch and listen to artists like Patsy Cline and Adele." Download it here for Android devices and click here to download for Apple.
