Making Them More Representative
[Extracts from reports prepared for the Reading Room Division by the Reading Room committee of one branch church and the librarian of another]
Webster Groves, Missouri: The program carried out for our Reading Room during 1951 has resulted in a marked increase of activity. The first improvement was the installing in our display window of a better lighting system; the second, elevating the window flooring to a height on which printed matter could be easily read by passers-by; the third, placing the lending library where visitors could more conveniently see and handle the books to be borrowed.
Next, small groups of churches members were invited to meet with the committee and librarian in the Reading Room after it had been closed for the day to the public. Material especially prepared for the inspirational meetings was shared, as were articles on Reading Room activity from the bound volumes of The Christian Science Journal and the Christian Science Sentinel.
The account in Volume VII of the Journal regarding the establishing of the Christian Science Dispensaries, which preceded the Reading Rooms, was inspiring to many of the workers because of the practical approach of the early members of The Mother Church. Appreciation of the house-to-house canvass of Boston by some of these early workers roused a desire to do something practical in our own community to let the people know that Christian Science heals.
