Open Doors to Our Churches

[Note: These are extracts from reports prepared for the Reading Room Division by branch church workers.]

Inasmuch as our membership is quite small, and there seems to be no one member available who has all the qualifications for a representative librarian and who could give sufficient time to this important work, we have evolved a satisfactory plan for staffing the Reading Room. A large staff, made up of active church members who have had experience in the Field or seem to be especially fitted for the work, and who can give a portion of their time regularly each week, was appointed. Two of these are Christian Science practitioners, and all are consecrated workers. No salaries are paid. The money ordinarily used to pay the librarian's salary went into a more representative sales stock and a more accessible and inviting location.

The expense of maintaining our Reading Room in ground-floor premises is greater than the present expense of maintaining our church, but all the members are more conscious of the importance of their Reading Room because of this. Truly it is proving to be the front door, an open door, to our church.

We'd love to hear from you!
