[ARCHIVED] West Fargo Library offering paid summer internships for teens


The West Fargo Public Library is now accepting applications for new summer teen internship opportunities. Applications are due Friday, April 22 and can be submitted at


“We are so excited to provide this resume-boosting opportunity for local teens,” Lauren Nephew, Youth Services Manager said. “It’s a great chance for students to gain some on-the-job experience, learn about their local library and have tons of fun.” 


Hired teen interns will assist West Fargo Public Library staff in the execution of the library’s Summer Boost program and Little Red Reading Bus route. Potential duties include putting together program materials, helping set up and tear down at Little Red Reading Bus route stops, organizing books and other library materials, assisting patrons with finding and checking out books, helping patrons sign up for library cards, learning from librarians about the inner workings of the West Fargo Public Library and more. 


Students (incoming freshmen through outgoing seniors) with an interest in working with kids and families and/or in libraries are welcome to apply. Applicants should be able to commit to roughly 12 hours per week from the last week in May through mid-August. This opportunity is not exclusive to West Fargo students.


Funding for the West Fargo Public Library’s summer internship program is available thanks to a grant awarded to the Friends of the West Fargo Public Library nonprofit group by the Otto Bremer Trust, a bank holding company and private charitable trust based in Saint Paul, Minn.
