Fingal Libraries would like to let all our members know about a new service that was launched on our website on 1st May 2016. Another FREE online service, ‘Comic Plus’ contains thousands of digital graphic novels and comics with titles from publishers such as IDW and Manga available. The site contains material suitable for members ranging in age from young children up to the age of 18 years. Titles are always available which means no waiting for titles and there is no limit on the number of titles members can check out. This service is available anytime, anywhere, 24/7 with a Web connected device.

The ‘Comic Plus Library Edition’ App is available for download for Apple devices with an App for Android devices expected later in the year.

Betty Boardman, Acting County Librarian says ‘that Fingal County Council’s library service is delighted to be launching this new development for its members and making thousands of digital novels and comics available on its website free of charge. Graphic novels and comics are popular with all ages and many titles span the generations. Graphic novels in particular have become very popular at our libraries as they are highly visual, cross cultural, innovative and varied in theme. Making them available online will open them up to a whole new audience, who will also be introduced to the many other services available from Fingal Libraries.’

The addition of this service will further enhance Fingal Libraries eService collection. We currently provide eBooks, eAudiobooks, eNewspapers, eMagazines, eCourses and eLanguages as well as a number of online databases. Click here to check them out.
