The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. We ask patrons who are not yet vaccinated to please wear masks, but we will not be monitoring this. 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 more of the new DVDs we’ve received lately:
The Donut King
The rags to riches story of Ted Ngoy, a Cambodian refugee arriving in America in 1975 and building a multi-million-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. His story is one of love, hard knocks, survival, and redemption. Ted sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979 he was living the American Dream, but a great rise can come with a great fall.

Godzilla vs. Kong
An ancient rivalry is rekindled when a Hollow Earth scholar receives private funding and wants to use Kong to discover the origin of the Titans. Protected inside a biodome since his discovery in the 70s, Kong was the only kaiju who did not participate in the epic battle against King Gidorah, and Godzilla is determined to become the final apex predator. Meanwhile, the humans begin to suspect that everyone involved is being manipulated by an industry tycoon with a vested interest in the Titans killing each other off.
