The Macedon Public Library Board of Trustees has voted to open the library for in-person visits. There will be several computers available that may be used for one hour. The Discovery Room is still closed. We ask you to keep your visit short, as we will only be allowing in up to ten people at a time. We will continue to offer “Grab and Go” services for those who prefer to place their books on hold online and then pick them up in the cabinet outside the library.
Here are a few of the new books for young readers that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!
Franklin Endicott and the Third Key: Tales from Deckawoo Drive, Volume Six
Frank Endicott is a worrier. He worries about lions, submarines, black holes, leprosy, and armadillos. He lists his worries alphabetically in a notebook and suffers vivid nightmares that even a certain neighborhood pig can’t dispatch. When he accompanies Eugenia Lincoln on an errand to duplicate a key at her favorite dark and dusty thrift shop, Frank earns fresh cause for alarm. Odd Buddy Lamp, the shop’s proprietor, has sent them home with the original key and its copy. Can Frank come to terms with the mystery without buckling under his mounting dread? With a little help from friends (old and new), hot cocoa, and some classic short stories read aloud, the prognosis is good.
Night Owl: Upside Down Magic
Tonight is the Big Night sleepover at Dunwiddle Magic School, when all the fifth graders stay overnight at school and participate in the scavenger hunt, except Nory’s friend Elliott is attending a concert at rival Sage Academy where he plans to attend after the winter break. But if Nory can convince her fellow upside-down magic friends to take the hunt seriously, cooperate, and win, than maybe she can convince Elliott to stay at Dunwiddle.

After recruiting aspiring cinematographer Elijah Jones and moody director Maddie Grey, Gayle and her crew set out to uncover the truth of the island’s own phantom shark and win the prize money.
