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.
We have the King James Version of the Bible & reference books to read, study, or purchase. Also in stock are the works of the discoverer of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy. The Bible and Mrs. Eddy's seminal writing Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures are our textbooks.
