SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
It was March 2020 when the San Juan Capistrano Friends of the Library bookstore had to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After more than a year, it finally reopened on July 6, 2021.
There were reportedly more than 21 customers in before noon on the day of the reopening. The bookstore is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The bookstore and library are at 31495 El Camino Real, near Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano.
