Our Christian Science Reading Room is a quiet place for anyone to pray, study in our reference library, borrow literature or learn about Christian Science.
We are open for quiet study and prayer, abiding by the guidelines from the governor’s office regarding physical distancing.
We welcome visitors to drop by and browse, ask questions or to stay and read for as long as they would like.
We also invite anyone to join us for listening to services and recordings of services and activities from First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston.
You can listen to a recording of the Annual Meeting of First Church of Christ, Scientist, held June 8, either here online, or in our Reading Room.

A Librarian’s Prayer
Let this place be a haven
for all those seeking
spiritual uplift and peace.
Let this place be an oasis
for all those hungering
and thirsting after Truth.
Let my thought be so full of love
for God and all mankind
that it reaches through
glass and wood and screen
To embrace all who pass;
To embrace with love all those
Who feel the need of drawing closer to God,
By Mary S. Henderson
