Lanier Library receives grant for summer internship

The Lanier Library has received a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation to provide a summer internship opportunity for a local high school student.

The student must be a rising sophomore to rising senior, and will help the library with inventory and other work as needed. This is an opportunity for a student in the community to gain paid work experience, while providing assistance to one of the area’s most historic institutions.

Established in 1890, the Lanier Library is the oldest civic organization in Tryon and one of only a handful of private membership libraries remaining in the United States.

For more information, call the library at 859-9535 on Tuesday or Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
