If you're yearning for an in-person class, pickleball, tennis, or golf are available for you. And if you plan on sailing in the warmer weather, there is a boating safety course that's right up your alley.
If you've been using your time in quarantine to write, "Don't Think, Just Write!" will help you finish your opus, and when you do, you can "Sing, Sing, Sing!" or try "Life is a Cabaret," which is being given for the first time.
There are classes in computers and technology, how to take the best photos on your iPhone, and still life drawing and painting.
Among the many fitness offerings are Buff-Bones, Belly Dance, Zumba Gold, and walking for fitness groups, as well as several yoga classes.
Languages, real estate, guided meditation, and protecting your assets are available, too, in addition to a new class: "Critical Issues for Seniors."
There will be demonstration cooking classes as well, with recipes for you to try at home with your family and guests.
Dr. Christine Axen will continue her very popular History Happy Hour series on life in Medieval Times. There will also be an in-person tour of Grand Central and its fascinating history.
So take a look at the Bronxville Adult School website, www.bronxvilleadultschool.org and sign up to be transported to another time and place, learn a new skill, find the best ways to protect your assets, enjoy producing your art or how to prepare special treats to savor. There are sure to be classes that dress your yen for lifelong learning.

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.
