What’s New at the Bookstore
  • This summer, the Marymount Barnes & Noble Bookstore is offering fresh sandwiches and other quick lunch options, such as croissants, ciabattas, fruit, vegetables, and hummus. The food items range in price from $2.79 to $4.99.
  • Help save the Earth one bottle at a time: The Bookstore now sells the Water Bobble, a reusable bottle that filters water as you drink it, turning regular tap water into a refreshing clean taste on the go. The Bobble filter lasts for up to two months or 40 gallons of water. This equates to about 300 plastic water bottles saved from a landfill with just one filter. Water bottles make up 26 to 41 percent of the 2.4 million tons of PET plastic discarded every year, and it will take thousands of years for these plastic water bottles to decompose. The Water Bobbles sell for $9.98; replacement filters are $6.98. The bottles come in black, blue, pink, and (of course) green. Learn more at Bobble Water.
  • The Bookstore would like to remind faculty that fall 2011 textbook orders were due in April. If you have not submitted your textbook order yet, please do so as soon as possible. Textbook orders submitted before July give the Bookstore more time to evaluate books for addition to the textbook rental program and to locate used copies of books. This helps students save money.
  • Faculty and staff are asked to let the Bookstore know as soon as possible what art supplies, sewing materials, lab items, and other collateral supplies their students will need for specific courses in the fall. If you have questions, please e-mail the bookstore or call Theresa Kuron at ext. 1614.
Summer Schedule for Masses: Campus Ministry reminds the Marymount community that the schedule for Masses at the Sacred Heart of Mary Chapel for the summer is as follows:

For questions, contact Susan Welch-Paris at ext. 1607.

Managers Roundtable: The Managers Roundtable is an informal lunchtime discussion group open to any Marymount employee who manages others. The meetings take place every other month on a Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m in the rear of the Gerard Dining Hall. The next meetings and topics are
  • July 20: Managing Up
