Embracing Their Community
[Note: A report prepared for the Reading Room Division by a branch church Reading Room committee.]
East Lansing, Michigan
Feeling the need of a Christian Science Reading Room to serve the students of Michigan State College, and as the time was ripe in other respects for the movement, forty-one members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Lansing, Michigan, withdrew in 1940 to organize First Church of Christ, Scientist, East Lansing. They rented two small office rooms on the second floor of an office building for their Reading Room and the Masonic Temple for their church services.
Until 1945 volunteer help served in the Reading Room, which was open from 1 to 5 p.m. As the college students began to use the Reading Room, it was found necessary to extend the hours. In 1948 a regular paid librarian was appointed to serve for a part of each day. Volunteer workers served the rest of the day. The Reading Room was used evenings for board and committee meetings.
