Help Shape the Future of the Library

Falcone Library
Le Moyne College is beginning phase one of a multi-year renovation project of Falcone Library. An architectural firm, QPK Design, is working on conceptual development in November and December with initial concept drawings appearing in mid-December. We are asking members of the Le Moyne community to give us input about what a renovated Falcone Library should look like. The “learning commons” model is a way to benefit both academic and student life and to facilitate the College’s new strategic plan Sempre Avanti. This model seeks to encourage students and faculty to collaborate, communicate, and share, while also preserving quiet, individual study. Please join us in this exciting and challenging process. If you have a great idea, leave a suggestion on our web page, track our progress, or check our calendar to attend a public meeting.

Information Technology will perform network maintenance between 1 and 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 23 to upgrade hardware and apply security patches to several devices.
