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 that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!
Good Night, Good Night
Maestro of bedtime Sandra Boynton expands her bestselling The Going to Bed Book in this deluxe collectible picture book that will help a new generation of children get ready for bed. The sun has set not long ago. So begins one of the most widely loved children’s books ever made. The Going to Bed Book was first published in 1982 and has been a cherished part of many millions of bedtimes ever since. Good Night, Good Night is the larger and longer version, now redrawn by the author for a fabulous new generation. Appropriate for children ages 3-5.
Everybody in the Red Brick Building
A fresh, urban take on bedtime stories in the spirit of The House That Jack Built and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, from debut author Anne Wynter and Caldecott Honoree Oge Mora. Everybody in the red brick building was asleep. Until . . . WaaaAAH! Rraak! Wake up! Pitter patter STOMP! Pssheew! A chain reaction of noises wakes up several children (and a cat) living in an apartment building. But it’s late in the night, so despite the disturbances, one by one, the building’s inhabitants return to their beds — this time with a new set of sounds to lull them to sleep. Appropriate for children ages 4-8.
Sweaters on? Not yet! The air is crisp, and the leaves are bright — it’s the perfect autumn day to enjoy the outdoors. Papa Bear instructs his cubs to put on their sweaters, and patiently waits downstairs. When he checks on them, he learns that getting ready is no simple task. But even if this lovable bear family misses out on their planned outing, the evening sky still holds a beautiful surprise. Acclaimed author-artist Matt Phelan’s rhythmic, repetitive text and his warm, expressive watercolor paintings are both humorous and rewarding. Appropriate for children ages 4-8.
