You can research Christian Science and its discoverer and founder, Mary Baker Eddy at our Glen Ellyn Christian Science Reading Room. Her main work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, is our Christian Science textbook and available to borrow or purchase here. The other writings of Mary Baker Eddy are also available to explain and illustrate the healing power demonstrated by Christ Jesus.

    You can also pick up a copy of, or read, our award winning newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor and other weekly and monthly periodicals. Bound volumes of the previously published Christian Science periodicals are available to read.

    We are located in the heart of Glen Ellyn, just north of the downtown business district.
