Thank you to all of our 1842 Day donors! Falvey Memorial Library raised $13,877.94 from the gifts of 81 generous donors and the Affordable Materials Project (AMP) raised $2,301.84 from 26 supporters.

AMP is a university-wide collaboration between the bookstore, Falvey Library, CASA, and the Office of the Provost, all working together to faculty with resources and options for selecting high quality, affordable course materials and creating student awareness of affordable options for obtaining course materials. 2021 contributions to AMP support library-purchased assigned e-books made available at no cost to students, faculty grants that support the adoption and authoring of free, openly licensed textbooks, known as Open Educational Resources (OER), and purchase of loaner laptops and graphing calculators for students who may not be able to afford to purchase, replace, or repair their devices.

2021 gifts to Falvey Memorial Library support the Library’s collection, benefiting Villanovans for years to come. Past donations were used to purchase new diversity, equity, and inclusion materials, new public health materials, and preservation supplies to preserve rare materials for future scholarship.

Every gift makes an impact for our students. Thank you for your support!

Kallie Stahl ’17 MA is Communication and Marketing Specialist at Falvey Memorial Library.
