The sorority often recognizes women who reflect the characteristics of scholarship, religious activity, and community service.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services has named the Los Angeles Public Library as a finalist for the National Medal Award, the nation’s highest honor given to either a library or museum.

The library is one of 30 finalists that were chosen because of their innovative approach to public service and contributions to their communities.
