Ease Into Spring with Bronxville Adult School Classes in March PDF Print Email


By Priscilla Toomey, Co-Chair, Board of Trustees, Bronxville Adult School

Feb. 20, 2019:  Have the winter blahs got you down? Are you looking at every lawn you see for signs that the crocuses are beginning to edge their way up through that brown, scrawny grass? You can enjoy the last weeks of winter as you ease into spring with some fabulous new classes at the Bronxville Adult School.

You might want to start with some comfort food. Do you know the perfect wine to pair with each of several fondues? Fondue and Wine Tasting at Dobbs & Bishop, on Thursday, March 7, will give you the opportunity to learn about and enjoy these pairings.

While it’s still cold, satisfy your inner Olympics craving at Introduction to Curling, Saturday, March 9. It’s the newest “hot” winter Olympic sport, and you can try it right here in Westchester at the Ardsley Curling Club. You’ll learn the mystery of why they use those brooms to get the curling stone from here to there, what’s special about a curling rink as opposed to an ice hockey rink, and much, much more.

Get over your winter skin blues at the Aromatherapy & Natural Body Product Workshop at Found Herbal on Tuesday, March 19, and explore how aromatherapy can help elevate your mood and heal your skin. You’ll also make and take home your own aromatic body scrub, which will smooth those rough, dry winter elbows and heels and soothe the skin with a custom-blended body oil.

As we begin to transition into spring, thoughts often turn to sprucing up your home and garden. Are you one of the many who have gotten hooked on Love It or List It or one of the other HGTV offerings? They make it look so easy, but how true is that? In Beyond HGTV, on Wednesday, March 13, you’ll learn the reality behind reality TV when it comes to getting your home ready to sell and what to look for if you’re planning to buy. And it’s not just the inside you can “dress for success” but the outside, too. Everyone wants their home to put its best foot forward, and spring is the season to make that happen. Whether it’s the garden of your house or the patio of your apartment, Where Does Your Garden Grow?, on Wednesday, March 20, will turn you into a pro.

Another rite of spring is doing things in and around your home. Many of us have a hard time letting go of the stuff that’s cluttering our homes and our lives, but we don’t like living with it, either. Downsizing Your Home, on Thursday, March 14, and Mindful Spring Cleaning, on Tuesday, March 26, will show you the hows, whys, and wherefores for painlessly paring down without regret. If you find yourself having trouble getting started on these or other important tasks, try Why We Procrastinate and How We Can Stop, on Thursday, March 28.

These fun and informative classes, along with many more, are included in the Bronxville Adult School spring 2019 catalogue. Registration is now open, and you can sign up online at or by phone at the school's new number, 914-395-0516.

Bronxville Public Library

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.
