A groundbreaking ceremony for the new university bookstore will be held at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, April 13, at the new bookstore location, 120 University Ave. The community is invited.
The new bookstore will be a two-story building with a large front porch and a prominent entrance on University Avenue. Adjacent parking will be provided on the south side of the building (near the post office). The bookstore has been designed to serve both the university and the local community, with a gathering place on the first level for book signings and other special events. In addition to a book inventory similar to that offered in the previous location, the upper level will provide a generous amount of space for clothing, supplies, and other merchandise.
The ceremony will include brief remarks from University Vice-Chancellor John McCardell and Board of Regents Chair Joe DeLozier.
