Hitting the books

Nearly 2,000 students hit the campus of Kauai Community College Monday for the first day of the spring semester.

“One of the exciting things this semester is the expansion of the bookstore,” said Cammie Matsumoto, KCC public relations director. “The bookstore is starting to serve meals and has extended hours to accommodate the student needs.”

Noel Mock, bookstore manager, said the store will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday because those are the days with night classes. Friday hours are 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The bookstore is closed on the weekends.

The meals are bento style prepared by the culinary arts department students and delivered by the cafeteria. There is an expanded offering of cold drinks and a cappuccino machine.

“Everything was delivered Monday,” Mock said. “We’ll have to watch how everything goes from here.”
