Need some extra motivation this Monday? With the University’s Annual Day of Giving beginning tomorrow at 12:00 a.m., University Librarian Millicent Gaskell has pledged to match the amount donated to Falvey Library as part of the 1842 Day celebration up to $1,842.
“A gift to the Library is a gift to the whole University” says Gaskell. “Those gifts have have lasting impact. They allow the Library to adapt to our students’ ever-changing needs and, over time, to realize our vision that will transform the Library facility, collections, and resources.”
With more than half a million visitors each year, the library continues to evolve. Gifts to Falvey Library in 2018 allowed University Archives to purchase preservation supplies in order to rehouse thousands of at-risk, rare materials—including 10,000 photo negatives; 35 scrapbooks, photographic albums, and University logs—and inventory more than 1,100 CDs and DVDs.
Help us unite to ignite: your gift will enhance and impact the Library’s collections, including books, databases, e-journals, Special Collections, and the University Archives. An essential part of life at Villanova, the benefits of your gift will impact students and faculty for generations to come.
1842 Day, the Villanova University Official Day of Giving, will run from 12 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 17, to 12 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 18. You can make your donation to the Library via the 1842 website.
