Now Hiring: Teen Summer Interns

March 16, 2017 - 11:30am

When school’s out for you, the library is a very active place! That’s why we’re hiring two teen interns for for the summer. We are looking for students currently in grade 11 or 12 who love the library, love working with younger kids and teens, have excellent communication skills, and can roll with the crazy-busy atmosphere in Youth and Teen 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’ll need good computer skills, a mature attitude and a sense of humor. You’ll have opportunities to work with the public and behind the scenes, and help create an event. If this sounds like you, please come to the Teen Services desk to get an application, or contact Teen Librarian Donna Block dblock@nileslibrary.org to receive the application via email. Interns will work about 60 hours apiece. The internship will pay $10/hour and is a great first job experience.

Applications must be submitted by Monday, April 10th. Questions? Call the Teen Desk at 847-663-6490.
