New Fiction: Friday, January 21

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!

Where the Drowned Girls Go

In the next addition to Seanan McGuire’s beloved Wayward Children series, students at an anti-magical school rebel against the oppressive faculty. There is another school for children who fall through doors and fall back out again. It isn’t as friendly as Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. And it isn’t as safe. When Eleanor West decided to open her school, she knew from the beginning that there would be children she couldn’t save; when Cora decides she needs a different fate, Miss West reluctantly agrees to transfer her to the other school. She will soon discover that not all doors are welcoming.

The lean times following the Great War continue to require creative solutions for England’s noble class.

Does the crime have to do with rumors of hidden treasure at Foxwood Hall? They must make haste to solve the widow’s murder—before someone else becomes history.
