Books and Brew coffee stand inadequately stocked


Why isn’t the Books and Brew coffee area adequately stocked? They are out of milk constantly. Earlier last week, there was no milk up there at 9 a.m., and by the end of the day there still wasn’t any milk. Today, there was no milk and no tea. If these were the only two instances, I could forgive it, but this is a chronic problem up there. If you are going to go to the trouble to have coffee areas outside the Wood Center facility, make certain there are sufficient supplies so the poor workers don’t have to apologize all day for not being able to do their jobs.


Books and Brew has had some equipment malfunction and break down over the past couple of weeks, which is why they haven’t been able to stock milk overnight. We have been working with Facilities Services to get the equipment up and running so those issues won’t happen for the future. Chartwells’ leadership will be contacted about the tea and any other items.
