We’re renovating! The Falvey Hall Reading Room is being transformed into a new signature space with 24/7 Ada access and state of the art technology enhancements that will appeal to twenty first century students – convenient power outlets, internet stations and WiFi access, convenient power charging stations and comfortable wing-back chairs.

As part of the renovation of the Reading Room, new insulated and ultraviolet-filtering windows are being installed. All of the original windows have been removed and, as of Aug. 25, eight new windows have been installed. The ultraviolet filtering will help protect the recently conserved Pietro da Cortona painting, “The Triumph of David.”
