The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. Masks are strongly encouraged for all patrons, even if you have been vaccinated. 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!

The Thirteenth Cat

Zoey loves spending the summer with Aunt Alice, and her aunt’s new house is the perfect place to cozy up with a good book. But she’s unnerved by the overgrown forest next door, which is creepy even in the daytime and full of eerie sounds at night. Worse, there are rumors in town of a dark force in those woods. And Zoey can’t deny that the wild black cats who live there seem to be watching her. When she encounters a mean old woman who claims to be their owner, Zoey realizes there’s more to the cats than meets the eye. But little does she know that the closer she comes to discovering their secret, the more danger she’s in.

Kristy and the Snobs (The Babysitters Club, book 10)

The hit series is back, to charm and inspire another generation of baby-sitters! After Kristy’s mom got married, her family moved to Watson’s house in a new neighborhood. But the kids there aren’t very friendly — in fact, they’re total snobs! They criticize Kristy’s clothes, make fun of the Baby-Sitters Club…and worst of all, they laugh at Louie, Kristy’s pet collie, who’s going blind. Nobody does that and gets away with it! Kristy’s fighting mad, and she’s not going to put up with a Snob Attack any longer – and neither is the BSC!

Pax, Journey Home

It’s been a year since Peter and his pet fox, Pax, have seen each other. Once inseparable, they now lead very different lives. Pax and his mate, Bristle, have welcomed a litter of kits they must protect in a dangerous world. Meanwhile Peter — newly orphaned after the war, racked with guilt and loneliness — leaves his adopted home with Vola to join the Water Warriors, a group of people determined to heal the land from the scars of the war. When one of Pax’s kits falls desperately ill, he turns to the one human he knows he can trust. And no matter how hard Peter tries to harden his broken heart, love keeps finding a way in. Now both boy and fox find themselves on journeys toward home, healing — and each other, once again.
