Teen Best of the Best Internship

Chicago Public Library

Every year a team of CPL librarians evaluates the year's new books and compiles a list of the 50 best books for teens. For a third year, we we are putting together a list of the best books of the year by teens-for-teens. If you love reading YA fiction, nonfiction, comics or manga and sharing your thoughts about books through writing, audio and video then this is the internship for you. As part of a team of 12 interns you will focus on reading new titles, discussing your opinions and the evaluations of titles, while learning from teen librarians about the processes of content curation within the library. You will also be unleashing your inner #BookTok-er making book related social media content. If you have questions, please email Danielle Becker (dbecker@chipublib.org) or Marshall Caal (mcaal@chipublib.org) Program Schedule: The internship will begin on February 11th, and run until December 9th. We will meet every 2nd Saturday and meetings will be 3 hours (10am-1pm). These meetings will all be in person at YOUmedia HWLC (400 S. State St.). We know that some folx may head off to college out of state in September, so we will offer a hybrid option for the final four meetings of the year. You are also allocated 16 hours of asynchronous time for the month to read. This should hopefully be enough time for you to get through 2-3 books. We will also use Discord for communication about reading throughout the course of the internship. Payment: The pay rate will be $15/hour. You can set up payment by check or Zelle. If you are 16+ you will need to submit a completed W9 in order for payment to be processed. If you are 15 and under you will need a work permit. We will provide a Letter of Intent that you can submit to your school to begin the work permit process. For the total program this will come out to: 33 Meeting Hours 144 Asynchronous Hours For a total of $2,655 for the program. (Featured)
