News from the Catawba County Library

Catawba County Library
Press Release

Let’s get moving! To complement its virtual learning programs this summer, the Catawba County Library is offering a series of movement classes with Stretch-n-Grow of the Foothills. The certified instructors will encourage kids to find the fun in fitness and set up good habits from an early age.

The sessions are scheduled for Wednesdays at 10 AM, June 16 & 30 and July 14 & 28. Register for one or all of them by visiting or by calling 828-465-8665.

‘Get Active with Stretch-n-Grow’ classes will engage children with guided play and show them smart techniques for keeping their bodies healthy and in good shape. As a tie-in to the library’s Summer Learning theme of ‘Tails & Tales,’ the instructors will also teach kids a variety of movements that mimic the activities of wild animals.

The age-appropriate classes are designed to give kids a simple, easy-to-follow routine they can practice at home and share with friends. The lively sessions draw on movements used in pastimes like yoga, dance, and sports.


Did you know that North Carolina is home to some 470 species of birds? It’s little surprise, then, that birding – the practice of observing birds in their natural habitats – is such a popular pastime.

If you’d like to know more about how to enjoy local birds, the Catawba County Library will be offering a virtual program featuring birding enthusiast Jean McAnulty at 12 noon on Thursday, June 17. She’ll be sharing helpful tips for starting the hobby, and she’ll talk about how you can be economical in your approach.

To help your birding efforts, you can claim one of the library’s DIY kits to make a simple hummingbird feeder using your own empty wine bottle. In addition, all participants will receive a free May 2021 issue of Our State magazine, which includes two feature articles and a photo essay about birding in North Carolina. (One kit and magazine per household please, while supplies last.)

To register for the workshop and receive the Zoom link, visit or call 828-465-8665.
