Comics Plus is a digital platform offering thousands of digital comics, graphic novels and manga to readers through school, public, and academic libraries. You can access titles using a smartphone, tablet, or web browser, and can be downloaded to multiple devices. There is never a wait to read, all titles are unlimited access simultaneous use.
With Media on Demand from OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy free eBooks, audiobooks, and more from your library's digital collection. All you need to get started is an internet connection, a library card, and these three steps:
1. Find your library
Find and open your library or school's digital collection using one of the following:
- Our new Libby app (recommended for public library users on Android, iOS, or Windows 10)
- The original OverDrive app (for all other library users on Android, Chromebooks, iOS, Fire tablets, or Windows 8/10)
- OverDrive.com (for any user on a Windows or Mac computer)
- Lansing's Collection of Digital Content
Borrow a title from your library or school's digital collection. You'll need a valid library card or student ID to complete this step.
You can enjoy many titles immediately online, download them for offline use, or send borrowed eBooks to a Kindle device for the duration of your lending period.
You can also transfer titles from your computer to compatible eReaders or MP3 players.

We are refocusing the content that is available on the BiblioBoard platform and rebranding it as Inkie.org Library. The revised platform will exclusively feature content by Illinois authors, creators, and communities. Collections will include the Indie Illinois e-book collection and the RAILS Community Collections multimedia anthologies.
Over the last several years, the RAILS Community Collections have consistently experienced the most engagement from users in Illinois. Focusing on content by Illinois creators and communities will help libraries promote the Inkie.org Library to their patrons. It will also tie the content directly to the self-publishing services available via Inkie.org.
The Inkie.org Library (Indie Illinois and RAILS Community Collections) is available to everyone in Illinois, courtesy of RAILS, regardless of whether they have a library card. Items on this platform have no holds, no waits, and can be accessed simultaneously via this link: https://illinois.biblioboard.com/.
Access to Inkie.org
Inkie.org provides geolocation-based authentication through the IP address of the user's computer or GPS coordinates of their mobile device. Anyone who is physically in Illinois can access the collection without a login. A patron who creates an optional account while in Illinois will be able to access the collection outside the state by logging into their account.
Your patrons have access to the collections through:
- BiblioBoard app for iOS (from the iTunes App Store)
- BiblioBoard app for Android (from the Google Play Store)
Subscription made possible by RAILS. No library card needed as long as you are in Illinois when you download the books.
If you are planning on traveling,setup an account, and you'll be able to download additional content while on the go!
