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 in large print format that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!
No Land to Light On
Hadi and Sama are a young Syrian couple: she had come to Boston years before; he’d landed there as a refugee from a bloody civil war. When Sama is five months pregnant, Hadi’s father dies suddenly in Jordan. Hadi flies back for the funeral, promising his wife that he’ll only be gone for a few days. On the day his flight is due to arrive in Boston, Sama is waiting for him at the airport. But as the minutes and then hours pass, she continues to wait, unaware that Hadi has been stopped at the border and detained for questioning. Worlds apart, Sama and Hadi yearn for a way back to each other. But does that life exist anymore, or was it only an illusion?
When 650 of the world’s most violent human beings pour out of the Pronghorn Correctional Facility into the Nevada desert, the biggest manhunt in US history begins. For John Kradle, this is his chance to prove his innocence, five years after the murder of his wife and child. He just needs to stay one step ahead of the law enforcement officers he knows will be chasing down the escapees. Death row supervisor turned fugitive-hunter Celine Osbourne is single-minded in her mission to catch Kradle. She has very personal reasons for hating him—and she knows exactly where he’s heading . . .
Jeanie Masterson has a gift: she can hear the recently dead and give voice to their final wishes and revelations. Inherited from her father, this gift has enabled the family undertakers to flourish in their small Irish town. Yet she has always been uneasy about censoring some of the dead’s last messages to the living. Unsure, too, about the choice she made when she left school seventeen years ago: to stay, or leave for a new life in London with her charismatic teenage sweetheart. So when Jeanie’s parents unexpectedly announce their plan to retire, she is jolted out of her limbo.
