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!
The Witch, the Sword, and the Cursed Knights
Twelve-year-old Ellie can’t help that she’s a witch, the most hated member of society. Determined to prove her worth and eschew her heritage, Ellie applies to the Fairy Godmother Academy—her golden ticket to societal acceptance. But Ellie’s dreams are squashed when she receives the dreaded draft letter to serve as a knight of King Arthur’s legendary Round Table. She can get out of the draft—but only if she saves a lost cause. For children aged 8-12 years.
In the twenty-second century, a sun shift has made it impossible for mammals to survive in the daylight, and ten-year-old Elvie and her caretaker, Flora, are studying the migration route of monarch butterflies along what used to be the western coast of the United States, hoping that something in the butterflies wing scales can be used to protect people from the sun and save humanity from extinction. For children aged 10 and up.
Click, Clack Rainy Day
From New York Times bestselling duo, Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin comes a brand-new, laugh-out-loud Level 2 Ready-to-Read about a rainy day on the farm! It is raining on the farm. Drip-drop, drip-drop. Everyone stays inside, except the cows. The cows like the rain. Farmer Brown, the chickens, and the mice are worried about them. And then the wind starts to pick up.
