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 nonfiction books that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!
The New Design Rules: How to Decorate and Renovate, From Start to Finish
In this visually driven decorating bible punctuated with photographs from real homes and colorful illustrations, she takes you through her entire process, including every single decision she makes when it comes to picking paint, arranging furniture, hanging window treatments, and deciding on lighting fixtures. You’ll also learn when to hire a contractor versus an architect versus a handyperson, all the materials to consider (and why you might want to skip those marble countertops), proper measurements of the elements in each room, and so much more.
Mayo Clinic: The Essential Diabetes Book
Whether you or a loved one are living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, Mayo Clinic The Essential Diabetes Book is a practical manual for learning the ins and outs of the disease—why it develops, how it affects your body, how it’s treated, and what you can do to live well in spite of it. Each chapter delves into specific topics like how to monitor your blood sugar, how to incorporate healthy eating and exercise to lose weight, how to stay active and maintain a healthy weight, and how to get the most from your medications and treatment program. The newly revised third edition also outlines the most up-to-date information on new medications, advances in insulin delivery, and the latest diabetes technology being used by medical experts.
Back to the Prairie: A Home Remade, a Life Rediscovered
The New York Times bestselling author and star of Little House on the Prairie returns with a new memoir — both hilarious and heartfelt — chronicling her journey from Hollywood to a ramshackle house in the Catskills during the COVID-19 pandemic. Known for her childhood role as Laura Ingalls Wilder on the classic NBC television show Little House on the Prairie, Melissa Gilbert has spent nearly her entire life in Hollywood. When her husband introduces her to the wilds of rural Michigan, Melissa begins to fall back in love with nature. And when work takes them to New York, they find a rustic cottage in the Catskills to call home. But ‘rustic’ is a generous description for the state of the house, which requires a lot of blood, sweat, and tears from the newlyweds to make it habitable.
