Bronxvillians Grooved for a Good Cause at the 60s-themed Library Benefit: See Photos!

By Monica Malpass/FOBPL Board Member

May 2, 2024: Good vibes filled the Bronxville Public Library on Friday, April 19, 2024!

It was a 60s-themed spring cocktail party that spotlighted authors from the Era of Expression, such as Truman Capote, Maya Angelou, and Jack Kerouac.

Patrons wore psychedelic colors and enjoyed signature cocktails that were shaken, not stirred. They also nibbled on appetizers, including sushi, pulled pork sliders, and tuna tacos.

A D.J. got folks dancing, and there was a far-out silent auction with items ranging from an autographed Paul McCartney guitar to a signed Patrick Mahomes football & a Taylor Swift autographed L.P., among others. What fun!

Thank you to our sponsors Houlihan Lawrence Realty, Prep Academy Tutors and Iona University and major donors Rosie Amodio & Rob Rosenberg, Amy & Anthony Civale, Deirdre & Michael Doheny, Mark & Carmela Callahan, Kathleen & Chris Collins, Diana & Robert Deichert, Robert & Caitlin Edsall, Kathy & Donald Gray, Shirley & Joseph Kleumper, Mr. Peter & Dr. Jocelyn Luongo, Carolyn & Patrick Mattson, Lauren & Dan Toal, Deborah Van Eck, Gemma Clark & Clarke Sands. 

The Friends of the Bronxville Public Library ("FOBPL") hosted the event. Proceeds will fund special FOBPL projects and programming at the Library.

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.
