Library Comic is seen by an average of over 300,000 library employees, library patrons, and book nerdy webcomics fans every week.
Library can be read on this website, in daily and weekly Mailchimp newsletters, plus via Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter. Its size and panel format are optimized for Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook, and it is designed to be read on phones and tablets as well as computers.
Instagram and Facebook also allow us to measure reach — the unique number of viewers who saw one or more of our posts.
Our Facebook weekly reach has varied between about 5,000 and 84,000 between the week ending Jan. 1, 2018 and the week ending April 15, 2018. It currently averages about 20,000 per week. The median Facebook reach for this period is 16,507.
On Instagram weekly reach has varied between 103,000 and more than 598,00 during the same period. It averages about 255,000 per week. The median Instagram reach for this period is 236,751.
We’re comfortable saying that the numbers indicate over between 300,000 – 350,000 people read Library Comic every week. (Our shorthand for figuring this is total followers / subscribers (see number below) + average Instagram reach.This number continues to climb. (We believe the actual number is likely higher than this based on the rise in our Tumblr followers in particular, but there’s no good source of data for that.))
