Summer Interns Wanted at SL Library

Summer Interns Wanted at SL Library

Is your sixteen- or seventeen-year old looking for summer work?

Thanks to YALSA and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, the South Lafourche Branch is seeking two teen interns to help with the 2015 Summer Reading Program.

Teens will work 50 hours during June and July to assist with various aspects of the library’s Summer Reading Program and will earn $10 per hour, for a total of $500 each during the summer.

To be eligible for an internship, teens must be either 16 or 17 years old; be enrolled in local public or parochial schools or be homeschooled; and live in the South Lafourche communities of Larose, Cut Off, Galliano, Golden Meadow, Leeville or Fourchon.

Teen interns will assist in Summer Reading programs ranging from Story hour and crafts to theatrical performances and guest storytellers. Primarily, they’ll help staff members plan for and implement Summer Reading programs, but they’ll also have an opportunity to assist in programs such as LEGO Robotics, K’nex Kids, and more.

The South Lafourche Branch will be accepting applications for the two available internships in the coming weeks. Interested teens should provide their names and contact information to the library.

Katina Gaudet is the librarian at the South Lafourche Public Library. She can be reached at 632-7140 or
