Now You Can Borrow Books from New York and New England!

ConnectNY, our NY library consortia, has a new partnership with New England Express (NExpress), a library consortia located in New England.  This new library partnership enables students, faculty, and staff at 24 colleges and universities located in four different states to borrow materials from member libraries of the two consortia. 

As a patron, you can quickly expand your ConnectNY search to include NEXpress and easily request library materials from a library in the other consortium. (MORE DETAILS ON HOW TO DO THIS????) To expedite delivery of requested library materials between consortia libraries,  ConnectNY and NEXpress have arranged for coordinated courier services through UPS.

“This is something that we have been talking about doing for quite some time,” says Bart Harloe, Executive Director of ConnectNY (CNY), “so it is very exciting to be able to make this announcement.  NExpress contains 7 million books, and ConnectNY contains 8.6 million books, so we’re basically doubling the size of the book collections held by both systems.  And the enhanced delivery services we will be offering our patrons means that over 15 million books will be available in 2-3 days to students and faculties located at these 24 institutions.”  

Yeats at 150: Books from the Collection of Pat Keane

As part of Le Moyne College’s commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of William Butler Yeats, Professor Emeritus Pat Keane will discuss some rare editions of books on display in the Noreen Reale Falcone Library, offer a few observations on Yeats as a Muse-inspired poet, and recite several of those Muse poems.

The books on exhibit include several first printings, a first edition of the late rant, On the Boiler (1939), and two genuinely rare volumes: signed editions of the Fountain Press edition of The Winding Stair (1929), and of the Variorum Edition of the Poems of W. B. Yeats (1957). Pat Keane will discuss the provenance of both, explaining how it is that he owns a signed copy of a book published in 1957, almost two decades after the poet’s death.

An opening event and talk will be held in the Bernat Room in the Noreen Reale Falcone Library from 3:00 – 4:00 on April 9. Refreshments will be served.

This event is co-sponsored by the Noreen Reale Falcone Library, Le Moyne College’s Irish Literature Program and the Central NY Chapter of the Irish American Cultural Institute. For more information, contact Inga Barnello, [email protected] or (315) 445-4326.

Side by Side: An exhibit of paintings by Claire Stankus : February 27 – March 27, 2015

The Wilson Art Gallery will host “Side by Side: An exhibit of paintings by Claire Stankus” from Friday, February 27 to March 27, 2015. Side by Side features paintings created in pairs. Spanning the last two years, these portraits, still life, and landscapes showcase the interaction between similar and repeated imagery. These paintings work together to identify relationships, and document subtle changes in time and mood. The figurative works explore parallel mannerisms in posed and candid portraits, while the landscapes and still life result from repeated observations of everyday perspectives. Routinely observing the same scenes everyday can illuminate how constant, mundane habits or surroundings develop new significance over time. Noticing these patterns in our lives reminds us how small and daily occurrences can become more memorable than a singular event, and encourages us to examine our environment a bit more closely.

Claire Stankus studied painting and ceramics at Syracuse University. In her junior year she traveled to Florence, Italy for a semester abroad to study painting and art history. She graduated with a BFA in Painting in 2012. She was awarded a scholarship to attend the School of Art at the Chautauqua Institution in 2012, and in 2013 spent a month painting at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont. She plans to enter an MFA program in the fall.
