Reopening plans announced for bookstore, Nash Library, mailroom

Posted: July 28, 2020

Gannon’s Bookstore has reopened with modified hours and operations to facilitate a safe and convenient way for students to purchase and pick up books in preparation for the start of the semester.

As of July 29, the bookstore will be open during the below dates and times. Please note these hours are reserved only for ordering and picking up books.

July 29 - 31 | 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. (closed Saturday and Sunday)
Aug. 3 - 7 | 8 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Aug. 8 - 9 | 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Aug. 10 - 13 | 7:45 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Aug. 14 | 7:45 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Aug. 15 | 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Students are encouraged to order all course material from the bookstore online via Delivery and in-store pickup are both available, but occupancy is greatly reduced at the bookstore to accommodate for social distancing and other safety requirements.

Students can also coordinate with the bookstore to have orders delivered directly to their dorm rooms before move-in. In-store pickup orders completed before Aug. 1 for students living on campus will be delivered directly to dorm rooms before Aug. 4. In-store pickup orders completed after Aug. 1 must be picked up in the store.

Students who are quarantined on campus and need specific items from the bookstore can contact the bookstore directly to have arrangements made for no-contact delivery.

The bookstore will remain closed to general merchandise shopping until Aug. 12 as we prepare to safely reopen for all standard services. However, our Gannon Bookstore personnel are planning to have a pop-up shop at our campus dormitories during move-in days, where students and others who are present can purchase Gannon merchandise.

For any questions about our modified services, please contact the Bookstore at (814) 871-8421 or
