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!

Bridges: Engineering Masterpieces (Science Comics)
Follow Bea, Archie, Trudy, and Spencer (otherwise known as the BATS!) as they crisscross the globe using every type of bridge: beam, arch, truss, and suspension. From ancient low-slung rope bridges to modern hi-tech towers of steel, they’ll traverse them all. Their journey will take them through history and connect them with new ideas and different cultures. Along the way they’ll identify the dangerous forces trying to bring bridges crashing down, and how to defeat them—through engineering! For ages 9-13.
Nura and the Immortal Palace
With her mom hard at work in a run-down sweatshop, Nura must spend her days earning money by mica mining. Local rumor says there’s buried treasure in the mine, and Nura knows that finding it could change the course of her family’s life. Her plan backfires when the mines collapse and four kids, including her best friend are claimed dead. Nura refuses to believe it and shovels her way through the dirt hoping to find him. Instead, she finds herself at the entrance to a strange world—a portal to the opulent realm of jinn, inhabited by the trickster creatures from her mother’s cautionary tales. For ages 8-12.
