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!
The Paradox Hotel
On any ordinary day, the Fairbanks — affectionately known to its staff as the Paradox Hotel — is packed with ultra-rich tourists dressed for a dozen different time periods, all anxiously waiting to catch their “flights” to the past. Now, though, half a dozen of the world’s most powerful people have arrived for a summit. The prize: no less than control of time-travel technology itself. On top of that, the hotel’s snowed in, and the timeline’s acting even stranger than usual. Which means nobody’s leaving until further notice. And there’s a killer on the loose. Or, at least, that’s what head of security January Cole suspects.
When lumber mill owner Blake Dollarhide’s spoiled half-brother takes advantage of the innocent daughter of a homesteading family, Blake steps in as Hanna Anderson’s bridegroom to restore her honor and give her unborn child his name. But Blake doesn’t count on the storm of feelings he develops for sweet Hanna. When the war between the factions rages anew, everyone wonders if Blake will stand by the close-knit community he serves, or the wife he took in name only.
When 15-year-old Oscar Dreyer-Hoff disappears, the police assume he’s simply a runaway – a typically overlooked middle child doing what teenagers do all around the world. But his frantic family is certain that something terrible has happened. After all, what runaway would leave behind a note that reads: He looked around and saw the knife that had stabbed Basil Hallward. He had cleaned it many times, till there was no stain left upon it. It was bright and glistened. As it had killed the painter, so it would kill the painter’s work, and all that that meant. It would kill the past, and when that was dead, he would be free. It’s not much to go on, but it’s all that detectives Jeppe Kørner and Anette Werner have. And with every passing hour, as the odds of finding a missing person grow dimmer, it will have to be enough.
