With so many of us working from home these days, being tech savvy has taken on increased importance, and the Bronxville Adult School has classes specifically designed to help you get there. They include: Essential Computer Skills for the Workplace, with one course on Computer and MS Word Basics and another on MS Excel Basics; Python Programming and Tech Solutions for Your Home Office.
For just plain fun, there is Introduction to Tarot Cards and the ever-popular bridge. Language classes include French, Italian, German, and Spanish, each for several levels of ability.
Cooking classes include: Easy & Simple Plant-Based Tex-Mex Recipes and Classic Desserts De-Mystified. There are many art classes for all levels and genres, as well as theater, singing, and writing classes.
We are probably all sitting too much these days, so there are many exercise classes to get us moving, some of them in person, like FitWalk to Wellness. Belly Dance, Zumba, Buff Bones, and Yoga are among the other offerings. There are also sports classes offered in person, including Golf, Tennis, and Pickleball at Lake Isle Country Club in Eastchester.
The classes for Personal Growth & Lifestyle include the immensely popular and free Guided Meditation Practice, along with Making Sense of Your Dreams, Virtual Real Estate: What You Need to Know, Herbal Remedies, Home Organization, and Gardening.
There is something for everyone, and these classes are a great way to increase your knowledge, skills, or just have a great time!

Bronxville Public Library
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.
