Happy New Year! The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. Masks are required 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!
The Love Con
Sometimes Kenya Davenport believes she was switched at the hospital. How else could a lover of anime, gaming, and cosplay come from STEM parents? Still, Kenya dreams of being able to turn her creative hobby into a career. She finally has a chance to make it big when she joins a reality show competition, Cosplay or No Way. There’s just one catch: the challenge for the final round is all about iconic pairs, and the judges want the contestants’ significant others to participate.Luckily her best friend, Cameron Lassiter, agrees to be her fake boyfriend for the show. Can Kenya and Cam fake it until she makes it, or will she be real about her feelings, knowing it could cost her the best friend she’s ever had?
No Land to Light On
Hadi and Sama are a young Syrian couple in the throes of new love, building a life in the country that brought them together. They’d met in Cambridge, Massachusetts: he, a shell-shocked refugee of a bloody civil war; she, a passionate dreamer who’d come to America years earlier in search of new horizons. Now, they await the birth of their son, a boy whose native language would be freedom and belonging. When they are separated due to tragic circumstances, Sama and Hadi yearn for a way back to each other, and to the life they’d dreamed up together. But does that life exist anymore?
A popular young girl disappears without a trace, her skeletal remains discovered three years later in the ashes of a burned out house. There’s a suspect and compelling circumstantial evidence of his guilt, but no concrete proof. When he isn’t indicted, he returns to mock the girl’s family. And this isn’t the first time he’s been suspected of the murder of a young girl. Nearly twenty years ago he was tried and released due to lack of evidence. Detective Chief Inspector Kusanagi of the Homicide Division of the Tokyo Police worked both cases. DCI Kusanagi turns once again to his college friend, physics professor and occasional police consultant Manabu Yukawa, known as Detective Galileo, to help solve the string of impossible-to-prove murders.
