The Transylvania University bookstore offers the required campus textbooks and Transylvania apparel and gifts, in addition, as a "street store" along the vibrant Third Street corridor it also offers an extended selection of general books, snacks, convenience items, and non-emblematic clothing and accessories. The bookstore can be reached at (859)281-3570, firstname.lastname@example.org or customers can shop 24/7 at the bookstore’s website www.transyshop.com.
In April 2012 it moved off campus to its current location (132 West Third Street) across the street from Hall Field, the athletic field used for softball, and intramural sports. "The bookstore’s main focus is to best serve Transylvania University’s students, faculty, and staff," said Kristi Bowerman, bookstore manager and an employee of Follett Higher Education Group, the bookstore's managing company. "Our location allows us the opportunity to share Transy’s history with customers from all over the world."
Officials at Transylvania worked with local architectural firm Myers Jolly Architects PLC to design the storefront visible from the street. Architects at the firm had a vested interest in the bookstore: they have occupied the space adjacent to the bookstore for 19 years.
Architect Charley Jolly is pleased with the results. "It kind of completes the entire block," he said. "It's the extension of Transylvania into the neighborhood and yet another example of Lexington's efforts to knit together its college campuses."
