By Nina Evison, Bronxville Public Library Trustee
June 2, 2021: For the first time in ten years, the Trustees of the Bronxville Public Library are undertaking a strategic plan which will help the Library adapt to the changing ways that patrons and residents use its resources and facilities. The strategic planning process includes interviews with community members as well as a Village-wide survey.
As anyone who has visited the Bronxville Public Library will know, it is a Village treasure and a community connector. Located at the very center of our Village, the Library strives to be a place for lifelong learning and a welcoming space for social interactions and community programming. The Library Trustees are interested in understanding how patrons wish to use the Library, including the indoor and outdoor spaces and digital resources, in the future.
The Library Trustees encourage you to fill out the survey which will close on June 5.
Your response to this survey in its entirety will help us direct Library resources to the areas most important to our community. This survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

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.
