Volunteer/Intern, Worcester Public Library, Worcester MA

The Worcester Public Library seeks a friendly, outgoing, creative GSLIS student to work with their young adult librarian. The intern should be interested in pursuing a career working with young adults, be comfortable working in a diverse urban environment, and be able to commit to 5-15 hours per week, or more if desired. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience all facets of YA librarianship in an urban library. The intern will work to improve the digital presence of the library for teens as well as organizing online resources available to them, manage the YA collection, oversee teenage volunteers and assist them when necessary, help plan programs and events for teenagers, attend meetings of the Teen Advisory Group, work with schools and other community youth organizations to provide effective outreach services, provide reference assistance to teens in the library, and implement their brilliant ideas for helping Worcester's teens to succeed!

GSLIS students who have taken either Young Adult Literature or Library Programs and Services for Young Adults strongly encouraged.
