The middle school and the upper school bookstores have updated their checkout system to be completely electronic. The change was brought on by a desire to be more “green,” according to bookstore manager Irma Hernandez.
“I think [the system] is working really well,” Hernandez said. “It’s definitely had a tremendous effect on how much paper [the bookstore is] using.”
The new system requires that customers type in their birthday to confirm their purchase instead of signing a paper receipt.
Both campuses plan to keep the same system for next year, because of its effectiveness in reducing the amount of paper used by the bookstores and its efficiency.
