New Bookstore Manager Brian Kroll

New manager brings over a quarter century of campus bookstore experience to Lewis & Clark.

Hello! My name is Brian Kroll and I am excited to enter my first school year as the manager of your Lewis & Clark Bookstore! Melanie, my predecessor, has moved over to the University of Portland Bookstore but is still serving as my mentor while I learn the Lewis & Clark community.

I joined the team here in May after working at the Portland State University Bookstore since 1995. I served in a variety of capacities over the years there and have been on the management team since the mid 1990s. I am new to both Barnes & Noble College and the school but I have a wide variety of experience and look forward to integrating into the Lewis & Clark community. I’m dedicated to building on the great foundation the team has in place here and making the Bookstore into even more of a hub for the campus.

I can’t wait to meet more of our students, faculty, and staff as you all return to campus in the next few weeks. Don’t hesitate to say hello when you drop by the store, we’ll resume normal hours on August 23rd!
