This program, offered by Office of the Librarian/Informal Learning Office is designed for individuals interested in working with programming centered on primary sources and literature in a library setting. Participants are expected to have some experience and knowledge of contemporary literature for young adult audiences and strong research skills. This year’s program is currently offered in a hybrid format with students attending virtually and in-person.
This is an intensive 3-week unpaid summer internship opportunity, during which you will learn about the Library and help the Center for Learning, Literacy and Engagement develop and create teen-oriented content to support the 2022 National Book Festival.
Your deliverables will include: collaboratively contributing to the teen-oriented marketing for the National Book Festival, researching and recommending a set of LOC items that connect with this year’s featured Young Adult (YA) titles, and taking on significant roles in National Book Festival-related programming.
Your experiences will include: Learning about the careers and resources at the Library, building written and oral communications skills, and contributing to the development of teen initiatives and programming.
