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 children that have come to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!
Let’s Multiply and Divide
Multiplying and dividing might sound difficult, but this fun book aims to teach kids otherwise! In this colorful volume, students will learn about the basics of these mathematical operations through simple games and activities. Tips and questions will help them consider different aspects of math principles, while bright pictures make it easy to follow along through each fun activity. For ages 7-10.
A History of Me
Who do you see when you look in the mirror? One mother’s account of her experience as the only Black child in school serves as an empowering message to her own daughter and children of color everywhere. Life can be hard for the only brown girl in a classroom full of white students. When the teacher talks about slavery, she can feel all of her classmates staring at her. When they talk about civil rights, she is the one that other kids whisper about on the playground. In those moments, she wants to slip away or seep into the ground; and she wonders, is that all you see when you look at me? For ages 4-8.
