JACKSON, MS – The Jackson Hinds Library System has added RBdigital comics to its online offerings. Jackson and Hinds County residents now have access to hundreds of comics and graphic novels on RBdigital mobile apps and web browsers.
Patrons of all ages will find something to love in this new collection—from Disney Comics’ beloved characters and stories such as Frozen, Lion King, Star Wars, and Mickey Mouse, to Marvel Comics’ blockbusters Captain Marvel, Spiderman, The Avengers, and X-Men. RBdigital Comics also features other popular titles from top brands, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hellboy, Transformers, Ghostbusters, and My Little Pony.
Patrons can check out comics as an entire volume—rather than having to check out each individual issue—and can instantly read checked-out comics on the RBdigital app or desktop browser.
JHLS Executive Director Patty Furr comments, “In light of the recent COVID-19 virus, we know that many parents, teens and kids are sheltering in place and need something positive and interesting to help pass the time. Our library staff highly recommends that anyone in our service area who is spending time at home try the new RBdigital Comics collection. This 1,500-item collection has comics and graphic novels for everyone of any age from elementary school students to adults. If you are tired of hearing about the coronavirus outbreak on the news all day, RBdigital Comics can help you stay entertained and positive during this very stressful time.”
”To allow more persons to enjoy our electronic resources, which now include RBdigital comics, e-audios and digital magazines, as well as our OverDrive e-book resources, we are offering an online registration option on our website. Details and instructions can be found at jhlibrary.org/digitalcard. This option allows Hinds County residents to have a six-digit digital library card number that will provide three months of online access to all of our online resources. At the end of the three-month time, online card holders can then stop by one of our branch libraries and convert their card to a regular library card account.
Hinds County residents can access RBdigital Comics through their local library at jhlibrary.org.
Library card holders and online registrants can get assistance with access problems by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. JHLS library services are funded by the City of Jackson and the Hinds County Board of Supervisors.
