BPL Outdoors Campaign Kicks Off in Style!

There’s excitement in the air after a Cocktail Launch Party at the Bronxville Public Library last Wednesday, kicking off the new $750,000 Outdoor Space Capital Campaign!

Dozens of supporters enjoyed unique cocktails, wine, and hors d’oeuvres as they looked at architectural renderings and learned more about it.

The project will create an enlarged back patio with eating/meeting spots, new lighting, drainage, WIFI, and beautiful landscaping accessible to all. It kicks off next month and will be completed by next June.

It’s a public/private partnership with funds from Bronxville Village, New York State, the Friends of the Bronxville Public Library, and private donors. Two-thirds of the money has already been raised, but another $250,000 is needed, so all donations are welcome!

FOBPL President Carolyn Mattson says this will be a breathtaking new space for generations to come. “It is so important to connect with yourself and others, to enjoy time outside in a beautiful space, learn something new, or maybe just be,” Mattson says.
