The Mary Baker Eddy Library opened in 2002 as a place for people to explore the life, ideas, and achievements of Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910), a remarkable nineteenth-century New England woman who overcame adversity to write a groundbreaking book on religion, health, and spirituality: Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. She was a woman decades ahead of her time, pioneering such fields as business, education, publishing, and founded The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.
Established as a cultural and historical institution, the Library and museum provides educational experiences, programs, and exhibits featuring the Mapparium®, the Hall of Ideas®, and the Quest Gallery. The Library also offers user-friendly access to its vast collections through Research and Reference Services. As its primary resource, the Library’s collections include one of the largest collections by and about an American woman.
Mary Baker Eddy is a woman deserving of a place in history. She lived during a time when women had few options outside of marriage and virtually no voice to speak out in public. Eddy fought through those restrictions and helped all women make important strides forward in America. This Library is dedicated to her work, her life, and her remarkable achievements.
