2013-14 Unit Plan
Butte College Bookstore

Mission Statement

To procure and offer texts, books, merchandise and services to students, faculty, staff and the general public in support of the college’s educational mission to maximize the collegiate experience of our students in achieving their educational goals.

Program Description

As the primary outlet for textbooks and related merchandise, as well as serving as the convenience store for the campus, the Bookstore is successfully meeting its mission, employing a professional and loyal staff dedicated to making the store a viable business enterprise and serving students to the best of its ability. 

In spring 2013 the Bookstore continues to focus on customer service and a pleasant shopping environment, providing students and staff with a wide array of products.  A complete array of school supplies, textbooks, textbook rentals, custom texts, and texts in multiple formats are just some of the ways we cater to student needs.  We also carry a large selection of merchandise from logo t-shirts, hats and sweatshirts, to all possible supplies students may need to be successful. 

The Bookstore understands the competition in today’s market so consequently does all it can to put student’s first, and to become the preferred shopping destination for textbooks, other course materials, supplies and logoed merchandise.
