ALASKA STATE LIBRARY INTERNSHIPS
The Alaska State Library has three 8-week public library internships available for the summer of 2018. Applicants must have recently received, or be near completion of, a Master’s Degree in Library or Information Science. Two projects are located in Anchorage and one is in Petersburg. Interns will receive travel reimbursement, a $4000 honorarium and free housing for the duration of their projects. Go to http://lam.alaska.gov/library_internship for details. The deadline for applications will be February 15, 2018.
The rules of the Library are pretty simple; they haven't changed since Kindergarten. If your average 5-year-old can learn and follow them, so can everybody. To Re-cap:
►Absolutely NO FOOD and NO DRINKS in the Library (that includes water, and “closed” containers) - books, computers and carpets do not mix well with crumbs and liquids.
►No SLEEPING in the Library - there’s a Kenai City ordinance banning that one, so it’s actually against the law;
►Be QUIET - please take your cell phone calls and your loud conversations to the lobby, or ask if a study room is available;
►Be CONSIDERATE - which covers all other behaviors that might interfere with other people’s peaceful enjoyment of the Library.
PICK, CLICK, GIVE
When applying for your PFD, please consider a donation to the Friends of the Kenai Community Library. Our Friends help buy new books and equipment beyond what the City of Kenai can fund, and sponsor programs for people of all ages, including the very popular Children’s Summer Reading Program.
The Library will be closed Monday, February 19, for President’s Day
