Villanova University invites members and guests of the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick to celebrate their digitization of our Society’s archives. The exhibit, “The Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick and Irish American Culture,” will be held in the Speakers’ Corner of Falvey Library and will feature and display many historical documents highlighting the rich history of our organization, as well as a collection of artifacts from the McGarrity Collection.
Refreshments will be available and music will begin at 5 pm. There is no cost to attend this event, but advanced registration is requested.
Falvey Memorial Library is building number 18 on the attached campus map (near the center of the map). Parking for the event will be in the I-1 Parking Garage, located on Ithan Ave. near the intersection with Lancaster Ave. Please print and bring with you the attached parking pass for complimentary parking. You may need to show the pass to a guard as you enter and should leave it displayed on your dashboard when parked. You can find directions to campus online here (scroll down a bit): https://www1.villanova.edu/villanova/admission/visit/maps.html
We are also able to provide a limited number of parking passes for the M-2 garage, which is much closer to the library, for those who have mobility issues. If you would like to request a parking pass for the M-2 garage, please email Gina Duffy, Library Events and Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For general questions about the event, please email Laura Bang, Distinctive Collections Librarian/Archivist, at email@example.com.
