The staff at Falvey Memorial Library sends best wishes to our departing director, Joe Lucia, as he assumes the position of Temple University’s dean of university libraries.
Joe has served at Villanova since the summer of 2002, and leaves with an outstanding record of innovation and accomplishments that has earned Falvey Memorial Library national recognition, and has made the library more popular than ever with our student body.
We’ve gathered a scrapbook of photographs and memories to commemorate his legacy and to publicly send our gratitude for a job well done!
Thank you, Joe, for creating an environment where staff can freely engage in innovative projects and have fun in the process.

Early in his tenure as library director, Joe provided support as I took Family Medical Leave over the course of a year to help my daughter take care of our gravely ill granddaughter. My library colleagues pitched in too to cover my responsibilities. Our family has always appreciated this.

May you always have a book or guitar in your hands…

Congratulations on your new gig! Although I’m sad we only got to work together for a short time, I know great things are on the horizon, and I eagerly look forward to future collaborations (and Marc Fields shows!). I consider myself tremendously privileged to be part of the creative, cooperative, and intellectually engaged library you’ve built here.
Thank you for Falvey, and best wishes for Temple!

If I had a nickel for each time I said “there’s never a dull moment around here,” I could foot the bill for the next staff picnic myself. Thanks, Joe, for creating a world of possibilities and a place of yes here at the library.

I remember getting back from lunch with Joe after my job interview at Falvey was over and thought, “wow, I hope things are going as well as I think they are- the director and I mostly discussed guitars and amps!
