We are excited to announce we have received grant funding from the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) and sponsored by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to support a paid teen internship this summer.

Do you like working with children? Love to share your excitement for reading with others? Have some knowledge or a special skill when it comes to space and astronomy? Then come help The Mad River Valley Libraries bring “A Universe of Stories” to the community for this year’s Summer Reading Program. During this paid internship based from the Moretown Memorial Library you will have the chance to plan and lead a children’s program, as well as help out at other space-themed events and activities happening during the month of July.
