Christian Science Books in Libraries of Ocean Liners
In April, 1951, a new activity, which is proving fruitful, was organized by the branch Churches of Christ, Scientist, of Greater New York, under the title "Ocean Liner Library Service for Christian Science Books, Port of New York." This activity provides an opportunity to place authorized books of Christian Science before a large and ever-changing traveling public.
The work of the committee consists in furnishing the passenger libraries of ocean liners entering the port of New York with book units which comprise the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, a biography of her life, and a few copies of the Christian Science Hymnal. The committee has a corps of workers who visit the ships' libraries from time to time to check on the condition, use, and proper display of the books. These workers have established cordial contacts with the librarians or stewards in charge, and in this way have learned of many helpful experiences and healings and of interest aroused in Christian Science because of the availability of the books in the libraries.
Courteous co-operation is given by the management of the steamship companies and also by the personnel in caring for the books and in displaying them to advantage. For example, on the ships of one line the books are placed above a well-lighted map of the Holy Land so that the gold lettering is illuminated, giving the books considerable prominence.
