_ / NEW COLLEGE NEWS RELEASE NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: JAN. 20, 1966 "New College students consume books like other people consume food," Paula Paster concluded recently. Of anyone on the campus, dark-haired Miss Paster is most likely to know. The recent graduate of the University of South Florida manages the New College bookstore. Hhile the bookstore carries a variety of products, its main business is still the books that students need for both required and recreational reading. New College students apparently are avid readers and the bookstore does a good business in other than textbooks. "My biggest business is in special orders," said Hiss Paster, meaning books which are not required but are wanted by the students. She told of a recent order of forty books by one student. This week the bookstore moved from its cramped former quarters which had been created from garage space, to a building recently acquired by the college on the North Tamiami Trail. The new location will give the bookstore room to grow. "My problem in the old space was that when three students came in at the same time that was all it \.J"ould hold," said Miss Paster, who took over the opera-tion when her father died in November. -more-


College Bookstore Page 2 Most of the books on the shelves are either textbooks or uncommon titles not readily available on local bookstore shelves. Biggest sellers now are in the paperback field. This is understandable when Miss Paster says that the cost of the average te:l{tbook in hard cover now is $8.95. The bookstore:also carries standard college items such as pennants, sweatshirts, lamps, bedspreads, pencils, paper, laboratory materials, and some demand items in the sundries line. Since most of the bookstore business comes from the students, growth is limited by the size of the student body and the reading rate of students. "I try to listen to the students and anticipate their needs," is the answer businesswoman Paula gives to the growth problem. By next fall the college student body is expected to reach 250, which will provide Miss Paster with a good-sized clientele. -30-
