What is a Reading Room?

First, and most importantly, it is a quiet haven of peace. The Reading Room is part library and study area and part salesroom.


On-site — Read this week's Bible Lesson.  Speak with the librarian and ask questions.  Visit the quiet study room, which is a place to read books and periodicals, study and do research, listen to CDs, and pray.  

Online — We have Internet access to browse our church websites, including JSH Online (digital periodicals, pamphlets, archives, and more).

To-go — Our salesroom is a bookstore that has Bibles, books by Mary Baker Eddy, research materials, and Christian Science literature to borrow or purchase. 

Each Christian Science church has a Reading Room in its local area. It is staffed by experienced Christian Scientists who can answer questions and direct visitors to resources. A quiet area is set aside for individual prayer and study.
