on

Kerry Library is now offering free access for library members to a new eComics service, offering hundreds of digital comics and graphic novels, suitable for all ages.

 

All you need to get started is have a Kerry Library membership card.

Anyone can register online for this service using their card and choose from top comics including Marvel, Disney, IDW, Dark Horse and other major titles. There are currently over 500 titles to choose from, aimed at readers young and old.

The new comic service allows you to read comics as you want – either check out titles as a volume or just as a single issue. There are no waiting lists. You can keep the title to read for up to 30 days with automatic return, and there is no limit to the number of comics that you can borrow at any given time.

Comics can be enjoyed either on a PC/laptop or on any mobile device via the rbDigital App available from iTunes App Store, the Google Play Store or the Amazon App Store.

Comics now join the existing range of online services already on offer from Kerry Library including eBooks and audiobooks, online magazines and newspapers, eLearning courses and language learning classes online. These resources cater for all ages and are accessible on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Meanwhile, for its youngest members, Kerry Library is continuing with its online ‘Spring into Storytime’ initiative. Each weekday throughout April, at 11.30am, they will be sharing on their social media pages, a storytime video recorded by librarians throughout the county.

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
