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 into the library recently. We invite you to check them out!

Indexes, cross-references, and expert commentary throughout empower readers to collect with confidence and price their own antiques.
Think Like a Horse: Lessons in Life, Leadership, and Empathy from an Unconventional Cowboy (large print edition)
Through training thousands of horses, Grant Golliher was able to learn essential lessons about communication, boundaries, fairness, trust, and respect — lessons that apply not just to horses but to humans as well. It’s why celebrities, Fortune 500 executives, professional coaches, supreme court justices, and even ordinary families flock to his ranch every year. The lessons he shares are as fundamental and ageless as the relationship between horses, the people who ride them, and the beauty of the West. In fact, it’s an approach that anyone can learn in order to better understand our common humanity, overcome trauma, foster more fulfilled relationships, and unlock untapped potential in virtually every aspect of our lives.
We Never Die: Secrets of the Afterlife (large print edition)
Psychic medium Matt Fraser is back to unpack the number one question folks ask him: What happens after death? Drawing from thousands of conversations with Spirit, Matt pulls back the curtain on life’s hidden revelations: what happens when we cross over; the beautiful realities of heaven and eternal life; the guardian angels who keep us safe on Earth (including our pets who have passed); the role of dreams and how souls appear to the living; destiny, free will, and second chances; regrets, amends, and forgiveness from heaven; figuring out your gifts and purpose; karma, kindness, and living in the divine flow; and how to recognize the signs and messages our loved ones send us from heaven.
