< Audience – Library Comic


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 26,000 and 11,000 between the week ending Sept 2 and the week ending Oct 22 of 2017. It averages about 15,000 per week.

On Instagram weekly reach has varied between 195,000 and 473,000 during the same period. It averages about 311,000 per week.

Adding those reach numbers to our Tumblr, website, MailChimp, and Twitter subscribers / followers consistently indicates that over 300,000  people read at least one or more of our comics on average every week.
