Special Offer: ComicsPlus for Libraries

OhioNET is thrilled to be partnering for the first time with LibraryPass to offer an incredible limited-time discount on their ComicsPlus for Libraries platform! 

Getting kids and teens to enjoy reading can be a challenge, but comic books, graphic novels, and manga offer an incredible opportunity to engage, excite, and inspire readers of all abilities and ages. Comics foster empathy for others by providing immersive perspectives on lives, stories, and even classic texts that might otherwise seem abstract or unrelatable for some readers. From adaptations of classic literature to profiles of courage, nonfiction to memoir — the comics medium employs visual elements that help engage and excite readers about subjects they might not have otherwise chosen to read.

With ComicsPlus for Libraries, readers have access to a growing collection of digital comic books, graphic novels, and manga — curated by age range, genre, and themes — ensuring maximized circulation through customized reading programs, book clubs, and other engaging initiatives. Every title is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for offline reading with unlimited simultaneous checkout. 

Readers can access the digital collection 24/7 via your library’s website or the LibraryPass iOS and Android apps. LibraryPass also provides a Resource Center for librarians and educators, including useful programming concepts and lesson plans to bolster engagement and circulation. 

Usage is trackable by the overall collection as well as individual titles to show exactly what’s circulating the most, while patrons’ individual browsing and reading preferences always remain private.

Contact OhioNET's Electronic Resources Coordinator Sarah Probst (sarahp@ohionet.org) for more information, including pricing and additional collection information. Visit ComicsPlusApp.com/demo to learn more and get access to a free demo account.
