As part of the Neuse Regional Libraries’ five-year Strategic Plan, library staff has made a commitment to provide access to programming that promotes social experience and growth. This month at the Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library, we have several upcoming programs that will allow participants to learn a few new skills while enjoying a community experience. All programs are free of charge and open to anyone who wants to participate.

If you’re looking to start a new exercise routine this spring, come to the Work It Out class at the

Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library at 6 p.m. each Monday during the month of March. Local exercise instructor LaVerne Robinson will be leading each session. This is a great opportunity to get into the habit of regular exercise through a fun, music-based aerobic workout. All sessions will be held in the Schechter Auditorium of the Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library.

The Library also regularly offers computer classes for those who want to learn more about using a computer. This month’s featured class will teach participants how to start their own websites using free online tools. This class will be held on Tuesday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m. The Library is also offering its cycle of Computer Basics, Internet Basics, and Email Basics at 9:30 on Saturday March 7, Saturday March 14, and Saturday March 21. Other classes available throughout the region include Internet Security at the La Grange Public Library on Saturday, March 14 at 3 p.m., Computer Basics in Spanish at the Maysville Public Library on Wednesday, March 18 at 3 p.m., and Computer Basics at the Greene County Public Library on Monday, March 23 at 10 a.m.

Through partnership with the Self-Help Credit Union, the Library is also offering a weekly financial seminar, Money Matters, throughout the month of March. A session will be held each Thursday from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Topics include basics of personal finance, saving money, building and repairing credit, and living within my means. These sessions will be held at the Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library.

Finally, for an easy, stress free night for anyone who wants to relax in a creative way, come to the Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library on Tuesday, March 24 for our Paint Party. This painting workshop will allow participants to create a beautiful monogram-based canvas by themselves or as a team. This event is perfect for couples, families or anyone twelve and up. Supplies and space are limited, and sign-up is required.

All of these programs are great ways to meet new people and interact with the community while learning new skills or picking up a new hobby. We hope that you will join us! To register for any of these programs, please contact the Reference Desk at 252-527-7066, Ext. 134 or email
