RED VELVET OREOS WILL BE UP FOR GRABS
Be sure to stop by the front desk to submit the name of a book you love. We’ll be giving away five packages of red velvet Oreos! How much fun would it be to bundle up and eat ’em while sitting at The Oreo? You know you want a selfie of that!

Important Note for Faculty: Falvey Scholars Award Nominations Due by 3/31
Please consider nominating an eligible student for a Falvey Scholar award! The Falvey Scholar awards are given each spring semester to individual or group projects of seniors who have completed exemplary (and publicly presentable) scholarship or research during their undergraduate careers at Villanova. The awards traditionally have an emphasis on work that has required substantial use of scholarly literature of the sort provided and supported by the Library. The link to the nomination form is below (and is accessed through our Falvey Scholars page); it is available early this year to encourage more nominations. Faculty have from now until March 31 to nominate students. We ask that they please consider nominating a student who exemplifies the award’s criteria!
Follow us to find out what’s happening at Falvey!
