The Lanier Library is a community library association located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Tryon North Carolina. One of only sixteen solely membership libraries left in the country, we invite you to become a member of this historic organization.
The library hosts many exciting events each year, including a special program and reception at our Annual Meeting, our popular Mystery Festival in October, a celebration of poetry each spring, a Book Lovers group each first Saturday and the Members’ Holiday Party, as well as monthly Live@Lanier programs of interest. Of course, the surroundings are always comfortable and the friendly, personal service never changes! To keep updated on our monthly activities here at the library, sign up to receive our newsletter or find the latest edition here: May Newsletter.
This year we are excited to host the national launch of New York Times best selling author
Mary Alice Monroe’s latest book, The Summer Guests, on June 7th at the Tryon Fine Arts
Center. The Summer Guests is primarily set in the Tryon equestrian community
and you may spot some familiar Tryon residents amongst the characters in the book.
The June 7th event is the first in a series of Lanier Library programs that will feature Mary Alice Monroe along some of her friends who just happen to also be award-winning authors. More information about upcoming events will be announced at the June 7th event.
Tickets for this fundraiser benefiting the Lanier Library are available in person at the Tryon Fine Arts Center box office as well as the Library. If you would prefer to purchase tickets online, click on the image at right or visit Lanier Library Mary Alice Monroe Book Launch
You can take a look at the 2018 Annual Report and if you would like any additional details, please come by the library. We have collected several detailed documents, financial and otherwise, in a notebook for your perusal.
We will continue to make the library a welcoming place with all the materials, from the newest bestsellers to favorite magazines and business periodicals that you have come to expect at the Lanier Library. We welcome suggestions for improvement and accept requests for new media and programs. We are here to make this your library!
Thank you and we hope to see you soon in the library!
