CHICAGO – The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), has awarded 20 libraries the 2014 Summer Reading Teen Intern Grant.
The grant is possible through the generous sponsorship from The Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Each grant is worth $1,000.
The grant will allow libraries to hire teen interns who will assist in the implementation of their summer reading programs. It is also a great opportunity that allows teens to gain real world work experience, as well as develop professional skills and a work ethic.
