Recent purchases: the Library just purchased 5 Overdrive ebooks by Mo Yan, winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize for Literature. His titles are hard to come by in print, but we were able to acquire these ebooks immediately, including the novels Life and Death are Wearing Me Out and The Republic of Wine. Find these and more good books to read at http://hnu.lib.overdrive.com — or stop in and browse our new popular reading.
