     The library makes Mr. Hubbard's prolific writings available to everyone. Through his many years of research, he always recorded his insights and discoveries – leaving a tremendously rich legacy for all who wish to better understand themselves and life.

     All churches of Scientology provide two main services to parishioners – training in the scriptures of the religion, and Scientology spiritual counseling, called “auditing” (from the Latin root “audire,” meaning, literally, “to listen”).

     Thus, seventeen rooms of the Fraser Mansion have been converted for use in auditing. Auditing is the procedure in which a trained Scientology minister helps an individual to look at his own existence so the person improves his own ability to confront what he is and where he is.

     Scientology churches are open to parishioners, as well as visitors, every day of the week.

     Visitors are always welcome, whether it is just to get information about the Scientology religion or to see the Church for themselves and enjoy the pleasure of touring the restored mansion.
