Card Entry Information

Card Entry

In order to provide improved security, effective 1/20/15 the Noreen Reale Falcone Library will institute card entry hours.  During these hours the front doors will be locked.  Students, faculty and staff will be able to gain entrance to the library by using their Le Moyne College ID in the card swipe installed at the entrance.  

Reason for new policy

The Noreen Reale Falcone Library’s new card entry hours were not put in place in response to any specific single incident. It is simply a step to increase the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff.  Requiring card reader entry during the evening hours is becoming standard practice for private universities across the country. A quick swipe of your ID is the most efficient way to help ensure that the library is a secure environment for members of the Le Moyne community.

How to gain entrance

A card swipe panel has been installed at the entrance to the library.  When facing the library, the swipe panel is located close to the front entrance on the far right side.  One simply needs to swipe their valid Le Moyne College ID and the door closest to the panel will be momentarily unlocked.

Community members

Current special patron card holders are welcome to use the library during these card entry hours and can enter the building by calling the Library Services Desk (315-445-4330) from the front door and providing their card number as proof of current membership.
