Finding answers

If you are new to Christian Science, you probably have questions about it.  Our friendly, knowledgeable Reading Room attendants will be happy to answer any questions you have.  If they don’t know the answer, they will guide you to the source that does.

Read, purchase or borrow books

We have a well-stocked library including Bibles in several translations, Internet access to all publications, past and current, the writings by Mary Baker Eddy, including Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures in several languages, biographies of Mary Baker Eddy, and more.


Quiet study and prayer

You will enjoy our comfortable study room.  Here you can browse through our complete set of bound volumes of previously published articles on Christian Science healing from April 1883, or look them up on our computer, using JSH-Online, and print them out to take with you.


Children's Books

Colorful, inviting, sturdy books for children that allow them to revisit their favorite Bible stories and their biblical heroes are available for purchase.
