New DVDs: Monday, July 26

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:

Set during the early 2000s, in Dream Horse the residents of a tiny town in Wales dream big.  Mired in listlessness and apathy since the collapse of the local coal mining industry, the townspeople are inspired by a local bartender (Toni Collette) to pool their little available money and invest in the breeding and training of a thoroughbred racehorse.  Their impossible dream — to win the annual Grand National horse race. Experience the inspiring true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely racehorse bred by bartender Jan Vokes. With little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to raise Dream and compete against the racing elites, becoming a beacon of hope in their struggling community as he rises through the ranks.
