With an abundance of caution and concern for our customers, staff, and volunteers we have closed the Holy Family Bookstore until April 4. At that time we will re-evaluate the COVID-19 virus situation and will either re-open or extend the closure. We appreciate your patronage of the Bookstore through phone purchases during this difficult time. We can accommodate curbside pick-up in the Holy Family Parking Lot or in the Pastoral Center. We can also ship items via the USPS. Just call (626)403-6133 Tuesday thru Saturday from 9 to 4 to place orders or make inquiries.
In addition to books we are happy to accommodate purchases of Fair Trade coffee, tea, chocolate and any other item in the store. We will gladly send photographs to cell phones and e-mail addresses to make shopping easier.
