Library

Welcome!

At Holy Family University, we believe in providing the best resources for students and helping them learn to use them effectively. In addition, we offer materials for entertainment purposes and recreational reading. Holy Family has two libraries to serve you, the main library at the Philadelphia campus and a branch library (the Learning Resource Center) at the Newtown location.
