Description: HISTORY

The Noreen Reale Falcone Library has been in operation since the College began in 1946. At that time it was housed in Le Moyne Hall on 254 East Onondaga Street along with the first classroom and the first headquarters for Le Moyne College. Through the efforts of Rev. Andrew L. Bouwhuis, S.J., the nucleus of the Library was formed with 5,000 volumes. The Library has been in its new location at the southwest corner of the campus since September 1981. It was named for alumna Noreen Reale Falcone in 1998.

OVERVIEW

Now there are more than 230,000 books and bound periodical volumes and 16,000 print and electronic serials. The Library is open 96.5 hours per week, serving about 1,135 patrons per day during the regular academic year. The two-story building, enclosing 56,000 square feet, has the capacity for almost a quarter-million volumes. The first floor includes the Academic Support Center, the Wilson Art Gallery, reference services, circulation, and media, current periodicals, teaching materials, education book collection, the Special Activities Room, and the Muserlian Instructional Lab. The second floor houses the bound periodical volumes, the circulating book collection (except for education), special collections and archives, and has group and individual study rooms.
