Boise State's library Starbucks location gets a face-lift

Dining services hopes that a new entryway will help traffic flow.

Starbucks in the Albertsons Library has undergone remodeling this summer.

Students returning to campus may be shocked to see that the entrance to Starbucks has moved. The door is no longer inside the library but in the library’s atrium.

“The thought was to help traffic flow and give Starbucks more flexibility in terms of operating hours and other potential uses for that space, [allowing for] opportunities to use that vestibule area for other [events],” said Mary Aagard, head of Access Services for Albertsons Library.
