Shovel Ready by Adam Sternbergh
Spademan used to be a garbage man. That was before the dirty bomb hit Times Square, before his wife was killed, and before the city became a blown-out shell of its former self.

Now he’s a hitman.

We meet off site and our next meeting will be at The Vino Cellar located at 141 St Charles Rd located in downtown Lombard.

Curious about using an eReader?

Have you ever wondered if you would enjoy reading books electronically? Are you traveling and don’t want to pack a pile of books to read? We have the solution!

The Library has eReaders (three Kindle Paperwhites, one Kindle Keyboard, and three Nook Simple Touch eReaders) available for checkout for adult cardholders. These devices are pre-loaded with current fiction and nonfiction bestsellers. Check them out to discover if you like this type of reading format or simply want a reading change of pace!

eReaders may be checked out by Helen Plum Library patrons over the age of 18 with a valid HPL library card.

Checkout time is three weeks and eReaders are not renewable. There is no grace period for returning eReaders to the Library.

Come in and try them out!
