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 19th-century New England woman who overcame adversity to literally write the book on religion, health, and spirituality. She was a woman decades ahead of her time, pioneering such fields as business, education, and publishing.

Established as a cultural and historical institution, this world-class 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 reference and research services. As its primary resource, the Library's Collections include one of the largest collections by and about an American woman. [1]
