Beaver Bookstore

Located on the north side of the American River College campus, there is a spot every student needs to visit at least once a semester: The Beaver Bookstore. Sliding glass doors open to reveal shelves of snacks and school supplies. You will find practically anything a student could need, from Scantrons and binders to umbrellas and headphones. On the far side of the store is school spirit wear, including sweatshirts, scarves, hats, and backpacks emblazoned with the ARC logo.

Located in the back of the store, students will find the textbooks: rows and rows of shelves housing any required reading for a class on campus.
