MyhometownBronxville: Who are we?
We are your neighbors, and there are enough of us for at least one of us to be the friend of at least one of you. Some of us grew up here, and most of us have had or still have children at the Bronxville School.
We, like so many of you, have volunteered our time in the community and care about it deeply. And, like you, we want to know as much as we can about what is happening in our village--at Village Hall, at the schools, the Planning and Zoning Boards, the library, at places of worship, in the business district and the real estate market and what is currently engaging the service, cultural and political organizations here.
MyhometownBronxville does this by providing the latest news, sports, events and information about Bronxville. We also have a Bulletin Board where people and organizations can post items for sale, events and services and a weekly Local Life & Style email that keeps readers informed about all the great items and services of local businesses. We also offer special special themed ad programs around special events and holidays.
Our staff is headed by our publisher and editor Sarah Thornton-Clifford, who grew up in Bronxville, and, after college at Princeton and earning a master’s degree at the Yale School of Management, spent 19 years at Time, Inc., in finance, marketing, sales and management roles.
Jeannie Murrer and Susan Quinn DeJoy are our sports reporters. Neely Bower and Allaire Warner are our feature photographers. Many other community members also contribute to MyhometownBronxville.
So here we are. We welcome you all to our virtual pages!
The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.
The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.
The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children. All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
