Due to the request from state and local leaders that people stay home during this upsurge of the pandemic, the First Street Reading Room will temporarily close for the month of December. The Marketplace remains open, but with no attendants there as long as Montgomery County remains on purple alert. The staff at both locations will stop in frequently to refresh literature and displays, check messages and collect mail.


Anyone wanting to buy or borrow items during this time may leave a message at the Reading Room  -- 937-299-6343. We can mail, deliver, or arrange for curbside pick-up for any item at either location.

A Christian Science Reading Room is a bookstore in which authorized publications on Christian Science are available.  We also carry numerous Bible translations and Bible reference books as well as Bible stories for children.


Here you can also access online resources to further your study of Christian Science, current periodicals, and the Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor.   

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Dayton operates two Reading room locations.
