The Christian Science Reading Room: An Open Door

In establishing her unique church organization, Mary Baker Eddy, the beloved Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, saw the necessity of providing that The Mother Church, as well as each of its branches, maintain a free public Reading Room. In making this provision, our Leader has shown her usual keen lore-sight and understanding of the human need. The Christian Science Reading Room affords an opportunity for all classes and creeds, irrespective of race, to investigate the teachings of Christian Science, and to gain at first hand, through study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, a higher understanding of God and of man's relationship to Him. Thus the Reading Room is doing its part in perpetuating our beloved Leader's discovery.

To the student of Christian Science who is a stranger in a city, the local Reading Room often proves a refuge. Here he may come and find himself among those of his own viewpoint, surrounded by the dear familiar things of his home church. In these rooms the Bible and all the published writings of Mrs. Eddy can be studied. The current authorized periodicals may be read, and the bound volumes of the Journal and Sentinel, from the early days of the movement up to the present time, are often on file, for those who are interested in research and in following the progressive steps taken in the development of the organization.
