Library Card Signup Month Spotlight: Comic Plus Library Edition


The Geeky Blogger is hosting a month long spotlight on The Library because of September being National Library Card Signup Month. When I discovered Comicsplus on my local libraries website I knew I wanted to share some information about it!

First off I am part of the Los Angeles Public Library System so I’m not sure if the Comic’s plus system is available at all branches across the United States.

Comicsplus doesn't require any software to be downloaded to your computer or tablet. Readers just type in their library card information and then create a profile with an email and password. Once that is complete you get access to the dashboard and the different comic companies involved which include: Viz, Boom Studios, Dynamite Comics, Valiant Comics and many more. Though I was disappointed to not  see Marvel or DC comics I was excited to see that there were brand new releases on the site like these two books which just came out this week:

I also got these great books:

The books are all available on my dashboard and accessible on your computer and tablet. I did get a warning from my tablet that they couldn't verify the website but I was still able to open the dashboard with out any problems. I’m so excited to have this additional source for my comic book reading! I also like that the books are available for a week and then are automatically removed from my dashboard after that.

I hope you check out the site if you are local or check and see if your library offers the same service!
Happy Reading!
