Commencement is set for May 19, 2019, at 2:00 pm. An honorary doctor of humane letters will be conferred upon Senator Sasse at the ceremony.

A prominent politician, respected academic, and best-selling author, Senator Sasse was the president of Midland University (formerly Midland Lutheran College) in Fremont, Nebraska, before he was elected to the United States Senate in 2014. He previously served as an assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

He is the author of The Vanishing American Adult (2017) and Them: Why We Hate Each Other--and How to Heal (2018).

Dr. John A. Nunes said, “I am delighted that Concordia’s graduates will have the opportunity to learn from, and be inspired by, Senator Ben Sasse. He is a man of deep faith and a scholar of extraordinary intellect, a gifted communicator, and an energetic advocate for civil discourse, all qualities we strive to instill in our students.”

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.
