For future reference, you already know you need /lib/, so you
can just run:

# yum install /lib/

And 'yum' will look up what provides that file, and install it.  You don't
need to track down the package name or anything.

But if you wanted to just check to see what package it was, you can run:

# yum whatprovides /lib/

...and it'll tell you which package it can be found in, which in this case
is the 32-bit version of the glibc package.
