Sep. 9, 2020: Concordia College deeply values its neighbors and all the visitors who make the College’s community so vibrant. In an effort to de-densify public spaces, however, only visitors deemed essential to the College’s mission will be permitted on campus until further notice. Following is Concordia College’s Fall 2020 Visitor Policy, also available at concordia-ny.edu/Fall2020.

Visitors deemed essential to the College’s mission must be approved in advance of their visit. At this time, such visitors can include:

-Concordia College Regents
-Select guests at the discretion of the President
-Designated vendors and service operators
-OSilas Art Gallery visitors under the conditions outlined here (not subject to the advance approval requirement)
-Immediate family members and caregivers of enrolled students under limited circumstances, such as dropping off a student for move in, picking up a student at the end of a term, and drop-off and pick-up of Conservatory and OSilas Art Studio students
Approved visitors will be subject to heightened expectations in accordance with Concordia’s health and safety protocols. Upon arrival on campus, approved visitors must check in at the security office Welcome Center and complete a health screening and temperature check.
Approved visitors are expected to adhere to Concordia College health and safety guidelines, including following instructional signage, wearing a mask at all times while on campus, and practicing safe social distancing.
Please note the Concordia Fitness Center is closed to visitors until further notice. The College Racquet Club’s indoor facilities are closed to visitors until further notice.

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.
