* Tuesday, Dr. Jill Mills, assistant professor of recreation and leisure studies at Mount Olive College, will present "Successful Aging."

* Wednesday, popular local artist and photographer Rebecca Scott-Reynolds will present "Digital Photo Sharing for Newbies," a program designed to help newcomers to digital technology learn how to share their photos with family and friends by using e-mail, Facebook, and more.
