The Christian Science Reading Room is a combination library, study room and bookstore where the public has free access to books and periodicals published or sold by The Christian Science Publishing Society.
A separate room provides visitors with a quiet place to study.
Created in 1866 by controversial religious leader Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910), Christian Science is a belief system which asserts that humanity and the universe as a whole are, correctly viewed, spiritual rather than material; that truth and good are real and therefore evil and error are unreal; and that through prayer and spiritual comprehension, through knowing and understanding God, these facts can be demonstrated in healing.
Housed in a storefront, this Reading Room is supported and staffed by the First Church Of Christ, Scientist.
