Introducing … Books & Bytes!

Earlier this month, the new cafe located in the Brendlinger Library — an already popular gathering spot for students, faculty and staff at Montgomery County Community College’s Central Campus in Blue Bell — was officially named “Books & Bytes” during a lunch-time celebration.

Books & Bytes was selected from 214 entries made by 90 different people during a naming contest that was open to students, faculty and staff. A naming committee — comprised of student Ariel Mookherji along with Dr. Aaron Shatzman, Dr. Lawrence Backland, Lynn Rothman, Mary Beth Parkinson, and Sharon Connolly — narrowed down the 214 entries to its top 13, and ultimately, the name Books & Bytes was selected.

West Campus Library Manager Margaret Forbes received a $250 CulinArt meal card to submitting the winning name.
