Starbooks Internet Café “ Whether it is wireless access to the Internet, a chance to enjoy the fresh air while studying, or simply enjoying a good cup of coffee or tea, the café is a popular campus hangout.” -Doug Brown, Dean of Program Development
Starbooks Internet Café & Patio What faculty & staff have to say… “ North Florida Community College Library’s Starbooks Internet Café is wonderful for many reasons, but one of the most significant is its ability to encourage and invite students who have little or no library experience into the library. They know how to have a cup of coffee or tea, but perhaps have never really worked comfortably in a library setting. It provides them with a warm un intimidating atmosphere where they may casually explore what is at the core of the pursuit of higher education.” -Dr. Rosario Leparulo, Chair, Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences
