Our Reading Room

If you would like a place for a quiet prayerful moment in the midst of a hectic day, our Church maintains a Christian Science Reading Room in downtown San Mateo. It is open to provide the community with a resource for healing and inspiration. 

Our Reading Room is a friendly place to explore the Bible, use Bible study aids, and read Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy as well as her other writings. There are books, magazines and CDs on Christian healing as well as the daily award-winning newspaper The Christian Science Monitor that may be purchased or borrowed. The current weekly lesson sermon is also available to read or listen to.

We have three computer stations set up for studying, listening to, and reading inspiring articles. You can also browse through historical archives dating back to the 1800’s. Our staff is here to answer any questions you may have… but you are free to explore our many resources on your own, including our Lending Library and the Weekly Bible Lessons which are read in Church on Sunday.
