Our Reading Room

We’re open every weekday, except holidays!

So take a break, come in, relax, and enjoy our new furnishings while you read or listen to the newest articles and testimonies in the Christian Science magazines, or watch a video clip from The Christian Science Monitor, a 24/7 Pulitzer-prize-winning news source. Using our subscription to the website JSH-Online, you can research and print out articles and testimonies from the archives of the periodicals back to 1883.

You can also browse and obtain all the books offered by the Christian Science Publishing Society: Bibles, Bible reference books, all the writings of Mary Baker Eddy and biographies about her, children’s books, poetry collections, and recordings.

The librarian is always happy to answer any questions you may have. Tell your friends!

The nearest Metro stations are Farragut North on the Red line and MacPherson Square and Farragut West on the Blue, Orange, and Silver lines.

We are open Monday through Friday 10 am to 6 pm (and for 15 minutes after every service).
