Dec. 23, 2019: The 105th annual Bronxville Christmas Pageant will be back on the hillside of the Reformed Church of Bronxville on Tuesday, December 24th.

The Pageant is a live nativity reenactment and begins at 5:30 pm. Every year, spectators marvel as Mary rides a donkey, accompanied by Joseph and the manger angel, to settle into the manger with live sheep. Joining the Holy Family are shepherds, angels on high, wise men, and shepherd boys. Children are invited to pet the animals and meet the participants after the Pageant.

The program today carries on the theme of unity and includes readings and participants from all seven local churches.

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.
