The call for culture

MBE Library logo
On the evening of September 20, many friends of the Library, staff, and interested people from the Boston community gathered in the Hall of Ideas and its adjacent Quotes Cafe to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the opening of The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity (to give it its full name).

Before the main program began, students from Project STEP (String Training Education Program for Students of Color) played selections from their classical music repertoire.

Enjoying the music was a member of the Library, from Brookline, Massachusetts, who, as she anticipated the evening’s activities, observed: “It’s hard to believe the Library is celebrating ten years—especially since there are some wonderful services I have yet to tap! What I have most appreciated is the opportunity to attend events that illumine Mary Baker Eddy’s ideas in both historical and contemporary contexts—thanks to the research that the Library makes possible. Many accept and know Mrs. Eddy as a thought-provoking spiritual and religious leader and healer. What is also amazing are her contributions as a social, business, and community leader.”
