Virgina Mitchell Virgina Mitchell Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library I have recently started studying for my real estate license and have come to the library to check out resources to help get started. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable and helped me my research. I attend their computer and tech classes every Friday, and have attended the Entrepreneur Mindset workshop. The library is a good resource to explore new things that I am interested in. Wilhemina Ormond Wilhemina Ormond Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library I love this library! They have been so good about helping me get information that I need. I have taken all of the computer classes and so far I have learned about computers in general, the internet, how to setup and use my email, and recently I have learned a lot in the Word for beginner’s class. I do a lot of bulletins for my church and have learned how to copy/paste, insert images, change the text size, shape and color. The teachers are awesome! I am so thankful for their help and the library. Elaine Jackson Elaine Jackson Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library The library has always been a convenient resource for me. I use it frequently for research and the computer lab. I enjoy the atmosphere and environment that it provides. The staff is always nice and very helpful. I also appreciate that the library provides several different programs and I love their community involvement. Cindy Cindy La Grange Public Library I love that Neuse Regional is part of the NC Cardinal Consortium. I am able to check online through my Neuse Regional account for books/DVDs from the Neuse Regional libraries to libraries from the mountains to the coast and have them sent to my local library where I can just pick them up! La Grange Public Library also has a very knowledgeable, capable, helpful head librarian, Rose Hernandez. She is always a pleasure to work with. I am very thankful we have a public library in our town! Carlena Carlena La Grange Public Library My earliest memory is going to the Library with My Mom when the Library was located in what is now Pride of Kinston. I would see her get her books stamped, with the card in the back and think I couldn't wait till I became a grown up so I could get my first card. At 13 I was able to get my own card, green with the metal number. Wore it out, several times,. Newest one is the plastic we used to rent out DVD's. Cards have changed, but memories have not. Enjoyed taking my Son there as a child. Lisa Gray Lisa Gray Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library I use the library infrequently, but because we have libraries we are able to enjoy so many services and materials at no or low cost!! Lucky us! Ayanna Ayanna Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library My name is Ayanna and I am 15 years old. I come to the library frequently and like to come because I love read books.
