About Us
The Mary Baker Eddy Library:
Our mission:
The Mary Baker Eddy Library provides public access to original materials and educational experiences about Mary Baker Eddy; the ideas she advanced; her writings; and the institutions she founded and their healing mission.
Our history:
The Library opened in 2002 providing public programs and exhibits, and offering in-person and remote access to its collections. It is a place for people to explore the life, ideas, and achievements of Mary Baker Eddy, as well as the history of the Christian Science movement. 
Our collections:
The Library houses materials that the Church began collecting and preserving in 1907. Over the years, the archives grew to include reminiscences of Mary Baker Eddy, as well as an extensive collection of her correspondence, along with other documents, photographs, objects, and books relating to Eddy and the church she founded. It is one of the largest collections by and about an American woman.
Our staff:

Committed to open access and independent inquiry, we strive to be a trusted and authoritative source for the public.
