Get Ready for Fall in “No Stile”: Falvey Memorial Library Unveils Refreshed Entrance and Access System

The library has removed the turnstiles from the entrance way, enhancing the library’s welcoming atmosphere for Villanovans and guests.

Regular semester hours remain unchanged, and Villanovans will continue to have access 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

However, it is important to note that beginning in the fall semester, a Wildcard will be required to enter the building after 8 p.m. Sunday–Thursday and after 4:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Patrons will swipe on the external door to gain access.

Library visitors will be able to enter the library until 8 p.m. Sunday–Thursday and until 4:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Courtesy card holders will continue be able to enter anytime during library service hours up until 30 minutes before closing.

Join us for a “Kiss the Turnstiles Goodbye!” event Aug. 28, 12-2 p.m., on the first floor, in front of Holy Grounds.

Also look for new automated doors for the main entrance lobby that are scheduled to arrive in the beginning of September!
