Huntley Bookstore was established in 1969, as a central service of The Claremont Colleges. The bookstore is housed in a 23,000 square foot building made possible by a gift of the Earl W. Huntley Foundation. Mr. Huntley served as a member of the Board of Fellows of the Claremont University Consortium until 1955. The building also provides office spaces for the Campus Newspaper and a repair facility for computers.
The bookstore itself uses 14,283 square feet, including sales area, storage and office space. Approximately 8,000 square feet is dedicated to sales floor use, where major emphasis is placed on a comprehensive tradebook department, which serves the community at large as well as the students, faculty and staff. Designed by Jones & Emmons Architects, it is a contemporary post and beam structure making extensive use of concrete block, glass and exposed wood.
