A Half Century as a Librarian for the Lord

Humble as she has always been, Mary Oliver Pick of Sandpoint Church in northern Idaho recently went past the half-century mark as a librarian for the Lord. And at age 92, she is still going strong.

After completing graduate work in library science at the University of Southern California, Pick served as a librarian at Walla Walla College, Pacific Union College and several academies. Later she went on to work with Our Little Friend and Primary Treasure magazines for the Pacific Press.

Nearly 30 years ago, Pick founded the Sandpoint Junior Academy library and, in her 80s, founded the Sandpoint Church library, which she still operates.
