AbstractThe Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library has been a vital part of the Kinston, North Carolina community for over 110 years. Starting out as an Up-To-Date Club in 1896, the library has flourished into the headquarters library of an eight-branch regional system spanning three counties: Lenoir, Greene, and Jones. Within this time span, the library experienced numerous relocations and renovations as a way to accommodate the rise in population and its growing collection. Its history is evidence that the Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library's community values the services, materials, and mission of the library.
