I love Boston, and especially the laws of the State whereof this city is the capital. To-day, as of yore, her laws have befriended progress. —Mary Baker Eddy
The Library participates annually in Boston’s Opening Our Doors community day. This year we are collaborating with the BSA Foundation to provide free, engaging activities for children, families, and the young at heart.
Inspired by Mary Baker Eddy’s appreciation of great thinkers, visitors can participate in Build Mass Ave — a hands-on interactive learning project to redesign the Fenway Cultural District’s beloved Massachusetts Avenue. Keying off of ongoing construction at the Christian Science Plaza and throughout Boston, we invite children to create their own small-scale buildings from donated materials, including shoe boxes, milk cartons, cardboard tubes, and fabric.
On your visit you’ll also gain insight into how different types of buildings can help promote better communities. And you can also tour the world-famous Mapparium®, an architectural work of art!
