Falvey Library: Portable Power Packs Available for Loan

Did you know that Falvey Library has portable power packs available for patron use? The power packs can be checked out at the service desk on the Library’s first floor for a three-hour loan. The packs can charge an item for up to three hours. Each pack has two USB-A ports, one USB-C port, one AC port, and one DC port. Each pack also has one USB-C to USB-C cable included. Falvey also maintains a variety of technology equipment for the use of our patrons, including laptops, calculators, headphones, and personal DVD players. Equipment is available for the Villanova community on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Access Services decided to add the power packs to our collection as part of a broader effort to revamp and expand the tech resources available to students at the service desk,” said Nicole Daly, Social Science Librarian, and former Access and Collections Coordinator.

“We wanted to make sure we were anticipating the needs of our students, and throughout the fall and spring semesters students were asking about charging stations. To meet that need we decided to add a selection of the most popular device chargers. We also added power banks so that students weren’t restricted to study spots near a power outlet. Adding these power banks offers students the ability to move around and find the perfect study spot, which is especially important during midterms and finals when study space is a hot commodity.”
