“Tis the season for student textbook buyback

It’s that time of year again! KPC’s fall 2014 semester is coming to an end and the Kenai River Campus Bookstore is buying back used student textbooks. Students can sell back their textbooks from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-3 p.m. Dec. 4-19.

The KRC Bookstore makes every effort to buy back textbooks that professors will use again next semester. The buyback program is designed to put cash in KPC students’ pockets and help future students buy textbooks at a reasonable cost.

For more information, please call the KRC Bookstore at (907) 262-0312.

KPC participating in Toys for Tots program

The KRC Student Union is once again collaborating with the Toys for Tots program to collect gifts for families in need on the Kenai Peninsula.

Last year’s effort was a great success, with donations totaling over $1,000. The Student Union hopes to make this year’s program an even greater success; every donation is appreciated!

The Toys for Tots program is administered by the United States Marine Corps Reserve and was founded in 1947 in Los Angeles, California.

According to the Toys for Tots website, the program and foundation have collected and distributed more than 486 million toys to more than 223 million children in need.

Those who wish to donate can drop off new, unwrapped toys (for both children and teens) in the donation box located in the Kenai River Campus’ Student Services department. The Marine Corps will pick up the box on Dec. 5.

For more information, please call the KRC Student Union at (907) 262-0339 or e-mail

The public is welcome to attend this fun, free event! Bring the kids and a camera. Complimentary hot cocoa and cookies will be offered, courtesy of the KRC Student Union, who will be sponsoring this family event.
