  5. Before the interview, Ms. Mackenzie will give you a tour of the Children's and Young Adult areas so that you can get a feel for them. 
  6. You will then go through a very short interview and be given a small cart of books to put in order correctly so that you can familiarize yourself with our labeling systems.
  7. Within 24 hours, you will be notified by either Ms. Mackenzie or Ms. Jenn if you have been accepted into the program.

What are your duties as a Teen Intern?

As a Teen Intern here at the Library, your first priority is helping the Children's Staff shelve materials as they are turned in. However, there are many other things that you'll help us with, including: keeping a count of patrons who attend programs, helping to clean the Children's Department, helping to prepare crafts for weekly story times, helping with Library events, and lots more! Teen Intern Application
