You have two options when checking out digital comics from LCPL: Hoopla and Libby (aka Overdrive). Each has advantages! Both require a Full Access or Digital Access card and PIN.
Note: If you used Overdrive previously, your reading history will be incomplete with the new switch to Libby. You can export your reading history from the old Overdrive site. (Click Actions, then Email history).
