Thanks to a generous grant from Dollar General Literacy Foundation, the Niles Public Library District was able to hire two summer interns to assist with our summer reading program for youth. Over 1,750 children from preschool through 7th grade participated in the program this summer. Our two interns, Jenny Hau and Christina Alexandru worked behind the scenes and directly with patrons for a total of 121 hours. This was a first job experience for both of them. Librarian Debbie Graham said, “ I do believe these two wonderful young women really benefited from the experience.”
“I’ve always yearned to become a pediatrician. This internship allowed me to get hands-on experience and interaction with children,” said Intern Jenny Hau. “I had an incredibly amazing time working in the internship and I will carry on my skills I acquired with me throughout my whole life. Thank you for giving this opportunity to be in this wonderful internship program.”
“This internship has been my 1st actual paid job, I wouldn’t have asked for a better 1st job,” said Intern Christina Alexandru. “This experience has helped me to become a little more professional and communicative. I am very thankful for this opportunity!”
We wish both Christina and jenny the best of luck in the future!
Thanks to Dollar General and YALSA!
