The Lanier Library on Melrose Avenue in Tryon recently announced that WiFi is now available at the library for use by patrons.
The library has also announced a number of events for the coming fall season. Two programs are already scheduled for the monthly Brown Bag Lunch series of presentations, which are held on the third Tuesday of every month at noon: on Sept. 18, author Rose Senehi will discuss her latest novel, and on Nov. 20, South Carolina novelist Jon Buckham will speak. Other programs in this series will be announced after they are finalized.
The fall book sale will be held at the Library Sept. 27-29 (members only on the 27th) from 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. each day. Donations of books, CDs, DVDs, board games, and puzzles are always welcome for the sale.
Following his performance to a capacity crowd at the Library last year, Celtic fiddler Jamie Laval will return to perform with several friends at the Tryon Fine Arts Center on Sunday, Oct. 28 at 3 p.m. This program will be a benefit for the Lanier Library and tickets will be on sale in the coming weeks. Stop by the library or check the website for more information.
Founded in 1890, the Lanier Library is the oldest public institution in Polk County and one of only 16 remaining membership libraries in the United States. It is supported solely by membership dues, gifts, and endowments and receives no government funding. Library hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Wednesday from 4-7 p.m., Saturday from 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Sunday from 1-4 p.m., and everyone is always welcome.
