Reading Room Notes

The Sentinel of May 29, 1943, carried an invitation to members of The Mother Church, and particularly librarians, to contribute, from time to time, helpful, healing experiences in our Reading Rooms.

The following are excerpts from reports received from Reading Room librarians of The Mother Church.

The importance of Reading Rooms is indicated by the fact that in the Church Manual Mrs. Eddy stipulates (Art. XXI, Sect. 1): "Each church of the Christian Science denomination shall have a Reading Room, though two or more churches may unite in having Reading Rooms, provided these rooms are well located."

To church members, to those just beginning to be interested in Christian Science, even to those who know nothing of this Science, the Reading Rooms give new inspiration, added buoyancy, and fresh impetus.
