Continuing an initiative Falvey’s University Staff Council (USC) representative, Phylis Wright, began last year, the Library is honoring its senior student employees with personalized bookplates. Each of the library’s twenty nine graduating student employees selected his or her favorite book in Falvey’s collection. Library staff then placed a bookplate bearing each senior’s name in his or her selection.
The bookplate recognizes the students’ graduation and service to the Library, indicating their name and year of graduation. Our current USC representative, Linda Hauck, says this gesture honors our hardworking student employees on teams throughout the library.
What did they read? Choices ranged from non-fiction to popular fiction as well as books chosen for One Book Villanova: Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal , Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet and The Kite Runner. The full assortment appears above the “new books” display on the first floor, under the words “Dedicated to Falvey’s Seniors.”
