We have interns!!

Summer's getting closer, and we're getting busier! We've got a lot of really cool things planned (including Go Game: Video Gaming at Your Library, but I'm going to save that post for another day), and luckily we have help to get it done.

Robyn, our fearless leader, has moved on to a position as Director at the Whitehall Public Library -- good for her! Before her departure, however, she lined up not one, but two interns for us. Stephanie, who will soon receive her MLIS (that's a Master's Degree in Library and Information Sciences -- yes, you do need a master's degree to be a librarian) from the University of Pittsburgh; and Michael, a student at City Charter High School.

Both of our interns have lots of experience working with teens. Stephanie was a Youth Associate Librarian at the Kansas City Public Library in Kansas City, MO before she moved to Pittsburgh to go back to school. Michael is a page at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh - Carrick, and runs their Teen Advisory Council. They're both going to be helping out with our Teen Advisory Council. Our next meeting is this Sunday, the 21st. If you're interested in joing the Teen Advisory Council at CLP - Main, feel free to come to the meeting.

There will be cookies.

I am so happy to see that you guys are carrying on the good work that we began together in September 2004. The teens deserve a place of their own and it is evident that it will continue with the leadership of staff, and the committment by the teen to the library.
