Allowed to use libraries?

Hey yo everyone, i have a question about libraries in regards to their usage and functionality .
So i wanted to make a few websites and use libraries like animista.net and animate.style/ to add animations and what not , am i allowed to use them to build websites which can sell to clients ? (Asking because they are under and MIT license and i dont really know how this works )
And another question is if its a good idea, as in to add these animations from websites that i sell to clients, or should i learn to make them myself?

if the animation creator allows you to use their work for profit then yes. if its free give them credit. if you paid for it then its yours. you dont have to make things yourself. thats the point of libraries

Hi thanks for replying, well thats what i want to know if its just because its free does it mean i can use it for my work when building websites for clients?
For example when i copy one of their animations im presented with this :slight_smile:/* ----------------------------------------------

Which im guessing means that im giving them credit and getting permission from them to use it ?

here is what i found out about the freebds license
