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 that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!
Where We End & Begin
Dunni hasn’t seen her high school boyfriend, Obinna, since she left Nigeria to attend college in America. Dunni works as a geneticist in Seattle and is engaged to a man she doesn’t love but one her parents approve of. Everything is going according to plan until she returns to Nigeria and runs into Obinna. The shy, awkward boy she loved is now a confident man. As they rediscover each other, their days filled with desire and passion, Dunni is reminded of the beautiful future she once planned with Obinna. But when devastating secrets are revealed and the reckless actions of their past bring new challenges, she’s left questioning everything, including if the love that consumed her as a teenager is still worth holding on to.
On the eve of her ten-year high school reunion, homebody witch Lucy Caraway yearns for more. Fueled by nostalgia and spiced rum, Lucy casts a spell that reunites her high school crush merman Alex Dwyer. When he’s unexpectedly given a jinxed cottage, Alex believes a merman needs a house like a fish needs a bicycle. He plans on flipping it and getting as far away from the Grove as his tail can take him. But once he discovers that his new neighbor is the witch who got away, Alex starts to rethink his plan. As the spell unfolds, Lucy and Alex wonder whether their newfound love is strong enough to outlast the fleeting power of a wish.
The Shadow Murders
On her sixtieth birthday, a woman commits suicide. When the case lands on Detective Carl Mørck’s desk, he can’t imagine what this has to do with Department Q, Copenhagen’s cold cases division. But his superior, Marcus Jacobsen, is convinced that this is nota suicide, but a murder related to an unsolved case that has been plaguing him since 1988. At Marcus’s behest, Carl and the Department Q gang reluctantly begin to investigate. They quickly discover that Marcus is on to something: Every two years for the past three decades, there have been unusual, impeccably timed deaths with connections between them that cannot be ignored. Faced with their toughest case yet, the Department Q team must race to find the culprit before the next murder is committed, as it is becoming increasingly clear that the killer is far from finished.
