Among the Churches

Current Notes

Bloomington, Ill.—During the year 1914 the literature committee distributed 19,308 pieces of Christian Science literature, among which were nine copies of Science and Health, seven annual subscriptions to the Monitor, three to the Sentinel, four to the Journal, and one to the Herold. The public library is provided with fifteen copies of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and the loan library of the Christian Science reading-room with ten copies. All of these have been in constant use during the year, and important additions were made at the opening of the new year to supply the greater demand.

Increased use of Science and Health through the libraries is accompanied by increased sales of the text-book and all other Christian Science literature through the reading-room, also a larger use of the room as a place of quiet and effective study. The work of the committee has been strengthened and enlarged by gifts of literature to the six libraries in this field, and the generous contribution of money for the use of the committee during 1915 by the Trustees under the Will of Mary Baker Eddy.—Correspondence.

Lancashire, England.—The great event of the year 1914 occurred in the general acceptance of the scheme of distribution of literature submitted to the churches and societies with the sanction of the Directors of The Mother Church. Distribution committees were duly appointed under this scheme in all the places affected, and the periodical meetings under the chairmanship of the committee on publication, at this office, have proved to be of real value to the field.
