Supervision of Children Policy

The library is a public place, and as such, cannot be responsible for unattended children. For their safety and protection:
Children under the age of seven must be accompanied and adequately supervised by an adult throughout the building. Children 7-11 years of age must have an adult in the building.


Registration for our 2021 virtual events can be done through our new online calendar.

Request children's books for curbside pickup here. Request children's magazines for curbside pickup here.


From January 1st to January 31st, MacDonald Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, “Book Like Us,” sponsored by Simon and Schuster. We challenge our patrons of all ages to log as much reading as they can on Beanstack.
Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will also be participating and encouraging their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. Prizes will include book collections and virtual author visits. Ten winning schools or libraries will each get a collection of fifty books from the "Books Like Us" collection. Happy reading, New Baltimore!
