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 of the new books for children that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!
I Can Be Anything
A shape-shifting lizard becomes anything he wants in this funny — and empowering — Beginner Book by award-winning illustrator Bob Staake. The giant lizard star of Bob Staake’s Beginner Book Can You See Me? is back — and this time, instead of changing colors, he’s changing shapes. (Very un-lizard-like shapes, including a robot on a dairy cow, a surfboard for a whale, and a one-eyed, green-headed monster.) Featuring simple rhymed text and high-energy graphic-style illustrations, this cheerful, funny easy reader is exactly what Dr. Seuss had in mind when he launched the Beginner Books series in 1957 with The Cat in the Hat. What’s more, Staake’s charming lizard shares an empowering “You can do it!” message with young readers.
Best Day Ever!

But then he scolds her, and suddenly — Worst. Day. Ever. Will puppy be able to make amends and turn their day back around? Join an exuberant, boundary-pushing pup and her exasperated boy in this reassuring story about unconditional love and the challenges of trying to always be on your best behavior.
