Dear Friends of the Library,

Since the founding of the Friends of the Library Organization in 1978, the Kinston-Lenoir County Friends of the Library and its Board have supported the Library’s mission of inspiring creativity, fostering learning, and engaging community in numerous ways. Our primary goal is to serve the children, youth, and adults in our community by providing popular programs, including musical concerts, literary lectures, interactive story times, crafts, teen clubs, book clubs, and knitting and crocheting classes, to name just a few of the activities.  I invite you to go online at to preview the many activities offered by our libraries.

The Friends of the Library organization also plays a major role in ensuring that children are able to enjoy the many activities at our Kinston, La Grange, and Pink Hill  Public Libraries  When a child signs up for their first library card, they receive a complimentary tote bag filled with a new book, a bookmark, and stickers for the child to keep, courtesy of the Friends of the Library.

I encourage you to assist us with making all of these incredible programs and services a reality for patrons of all ages in Lenoir County by making a contribution to the Kinston- Lenoir County Friends of the Library. Please renew your existing membership or join the Friends today.  Together we can make a tremendous positive impact on our Library’s ability to meet the cultural, educational needs of our community. Public libraries would not exist without the support of their communities, and your help plays a vital role in ensuring the continuation of the wonderful services and programming provided by our libraries.
