However, there are many resources and a continuing community in the area to support your study and growth in Christian Science. The downtown Reading Room in Adams Morgan (1782 Columbia Rod, NW, Washington, DC) continues to serve visitors and products can be purchased through them. (jmrr.dc@gmail.com or 202-332-9010). Please email them to sign up for notifications of online programs based on Reading Room products. Or sign up for newsletters directly from csmonitor.com or jsh-online.com.

Online orders for all Reading Room products can be placed through the SHOP on JSH-online.com directly from the Christian Science Publishing Society.
