The GTU opens a combined bookstore at 2465 Le Conte Ave. to consolidate stores from most of the member schools. Over its 35 years, it became known as one of the finest theological bookstores in the country. It was a gathering place for students, faculty, and alumni, as well as with the Berkeley community. Closed in 2008, the space became CARe’s Doug Adams Gallery for a few year in 2016.
