Friends' Summer Intern

For nearly 30 years, the Friends of the Avon Library has funded a summer intern position for a college student who has completed their freshman year. The position has evolved from a part time, 10 hours a week position for five weeks, to full time (37.5 hours) for ten weeks. The duties include working in all departments of the Library. Besides providing an employment opportunity for a college student, it gives a good overview of municipal employment and librarianship as a possible career. The students contribute a great deal to the Library while they are here and we miss them when they go back to school. The Library is grateful to the Friends for funding this position.

Recruiting for the job begins in early April. As students arrive home from their spring semester, the position is advertised, several are interviewed, and by June 1st, the college intern is working at the Library. The hourly rate for the position is $8.75 per hour and there are no benefits. The position lasts from June 1st to the second week of August. The Friends of the Library are proud of their contribution to the Friends Summer Intern program.
