Christian Science Reading Room
A Reading Room is a bookstore and library, an urban sanctuary where anyone, regardless of faith, can step away from a busy day for a few moments of quiet reflection.
Our Reading Room is our open door to
the community. It's a place where you can
come in and pray, read the weekly Bible Lesson, use research
materials, ponder the Bible, listen to inspirational CDs, ask questions,
and buy or borrow literature to advance your spiritual
quest. Here we make Science and Health
with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy
available to the public. We also carry copies
of The Christian
Science Monitor, an award-winning newspaper
dedicated to unbiased, solutions-oriented reporting of
national and world news.
For over 80 years, our Reading Room has been located on “The Ave” in the University District in Seattle. It's at 5034 University Way NE, the same block as the University District Farmers Market and across the street from the University Heights Community Center. There's free on-site parking. We hope you'll come in for a visit!
