Niles Public Library has been chosen as a recipient of a 2016 Summer Teen Intern Grant. This grant is designed to allow libraries to hire teen interns to assist in the implementation of their summer learning programs, while also helping teens gain real world work experience, and develop professional skills. Thanks to this grant from Young Adult Library Services Association/Dollar General Store, we can hire two summer reading interns for 60 hours apiece.
Ideal candidates are teens currently in grade 11 or 12 who love the library, love working with younger kids, have excellent communication skills, and can roll with the crazy-busy atmosphere in Youth Services during the summer. Interns must be residents of the library district or attend a school within our service area, and be able to work from the beginning of June through the beginning of August.
You must have good computer skills and be able to help raise our profile on social media. You’ll need a mature attitude and a sense of humor. If this sounds like you, please come to the Youth Services or Teen desk to get an application, or contact Teen Librarian Donna Block firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the application via email.
The summer internship will pay $8.25/hour and is a great first job experience. Applications must be submitted by Monday, April 18th.
