Reading Room Notes
The response to the opportunity offered librarians, Sentinel of May 29, 1943 . to share their rich experiences in Reading Room service, has been favorable. The Editors are grateful to those who have sent inspiring accounts of healings, and ways and means by which librarians have been guided to handle problems arising in this vital activity. More accounts of such proofs of the usefulness of our Reading Rooms will be welcome. Those who contribute for this column are urged to include all details relative to the experience or healing recorded, so that there is no doubt or question about how the help was rendered and the healing accomplished. Of particular value to readers and librarians is the account of metaphysical reasoning involved in working out specific Reading Room problems, and the Editors welcome letters which include these details. Also of great interest to branch church members are the accounts of Reading Rooms recently moved to locations where the opportunity is presented to serve the community in a larger way.
New York: Several weeks ago a young woman telephoned to say she knew nothing of Christian Science and was not interested in the least, but she wanted her mother to know something about it. She asked what she should do first, and it was recommended that she come to the Reading Room for half an hour. Some truths of the Bible were explained to her, and she was shown how they are put to practical use in Christian Science. When she left, she bought a Christian Science Quarterly and a copy of The Christian Science Monitor, borrowed a copy of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and took some free literature. The following day she telephoned and asked the librarian if she would find time to call on her mother and explain something about Christian Science. The librarian was glad to comply with this request and spent a happy hour with the mother, giving a more detailed explanation than she had offered to the daughter.
