I work in a library, where I also run a small knitting group. I've only been knitting a few years, so I'm not the knitting expert, just the resource cheerleader. The knitters who come to the group help each other (they help me!) and they help newcomers, too. I request books on knitting through the library network for the knitters to peruse, & sometimes knitters find a book they like so much that they go out & buy it.
I also tell people about the various online resources, and encourage knitters to patronize ALL knitting service providers, whether it be the LYS, online outlet or corner/chain book store. If a resource provides useful information, quality goods, and consistent encouragement, I recommend it! Stand with the knitter, Cat Bordhi is absolutely right about that. And we can all be resources for one another.
There are other knitting groups that meet in libraries, so if you are looking for knitting community, support, and information, check out the resources of your local library. Look at your local library website events page; also look on ravelry.com for listings of knitting groups in your area.
