bibliotheca Libraries Get Access to ComicsPlus Content

bibliotheca has partnered with LibraryPass and its ComicsPlus service to offer bibliotheca’s library customers unlimited, simultaneous access to ComicsPlus’ catalog of 20,000-plus digital comics, graphic novels, and manga. According to the press release, “The two-pronged deal includes a distribution agreement that makes ComicsPlus immediately available to bibliotheca customers through LibraryPass’ standalone app, as well as a development agreement that will make bibliotheca’s cloudLibrary the first and only digital platform to fully integrate the ComicsPlus collection, providing a seamless experience for cloudLibrary users.”

ComicsPlus has content for both juvenile and adult readers, including brands and titles such as “Avatar: The Last Airbender & The Legend of Korra, Big Nate, Bone, Disney Princesses, Geronimo Stilton, Stranger Things, Locke & Key, American Gods, and timely, award-winning nonfiction like March and They Called Us Enemy.”

“Comics and graphic novels are proven to increase literacy, particularly among reluctant readers,” says Tom Mercer, bibliotheca’s SVP of digital products. “We are thrilled to be able to offer an affordable way for libraries to offer an outstanding digital comic collection to their users, particularly now, when so many students are learning from home and looking for high-interest resources.”
