The Osterhout Free Library, Wilkes-Barre, received the 2012 Marietta King and Alberta Walden Still Diversity Award for their inter-generational knit and crochet group. The award was presented at the Pennsylvania Library Association Conference Business Meeting in Gettysburg in October. This award honors the life and accomplishments of the late Marietta Y. King and Alberta Walden Still. Both served on the Library Service for Older Adults Task Force, now the Office of Commonwealth Libraries: Older Adult Advisory Committee, from its inception until their deaths. The Older Adults Advisory Committee recognizes Pennsylvania public libraries that have promoted innovative library service to a culturally diverse population of older adults. The knit and crochet group meets every other Saturday at 10:30 a.m. New members are welcome. Call the library at 821-1959 for details. Members of the group, from left, first row, are Helen Campbell and Josephine Campbell. Second row: Alissa Lukasavage, teen librarian.
