Four Events for Adults at the Bronxville Library in June: The Media, the Brain, Stress, and History PDF Print Email


By Christine Cutchel, Head of Adult Reference, Technology and Patron Services, Bronxville Public Library

Jun. 6, 2018: The following are four events that will take place at the Bronxville Public Library in June.

1968, 50 Years Later:  Thursday, June 7, 1:30 pm

Join award-winning sports journalist Evan Weiner, for this in-depth look at how the media--especially television--came into its own in the 1960s. From the first of the Kennedy-Nixon debates in 1960 to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the scathing assessment of Vietnam by Walter Cronkite, Weiner explores how the media matured. You’ll learn how Edward R. Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy laid the groundwork. The foundation for the media we have today can be traced to these events and these important figures.  

Brain Aerobics:  Friday, June 8, 11:00 am

The brain is a muscle and, as with any muscle, needs exercise to stay strong. As we age, we can guard against memory loss and perhaps even delay the onset of diseases with memory exercises. Join Elder Care Homecare's Director of Patient Services Loren Gilberg, RN, BSW, CMC, MBA, while she gives you everyday brain exercises and demonstrations to guard against memory deterioration. Registration is required; email CLOAKING or call 914-337-7680, ext. 24. 

When Stress and Negative Emotions Become Addictive:  Monday, June 18, 3:00 pm

Any kind of emotional pain or distress, such as sadness, regret, or anxiety, will release stress hormones into the brain, and research in neuroscience and psychology has suggested that stress hormones can, perhaps surprisingly, become unconsciously rewarding in our brains. Join John Montgomery, PhD, as he delves into this topic and offers people a way to recognize and overcome these destructive patterns. 

History Book Club:  Tuesday, June 19, 1:30 pm

If you have a love for history and would enjoy discussing, on a monthly basis, a book that covers a significant historical topic, event, or personality, then this club is for you. For our first session, we will be reading and discussing James L. Loewen's national bestseller Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong.  The discussion will be moderated by Joseph Verdicchio, PhD, adjunct faculty at SUNY Purchase since 2001.

Books & Culture

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.
