The library is searching for four teen interns (entering 7th-12th grade in the fall) to help with Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math programs during summer reading. Interns will be given a $225 stipend at the end of summer for successfully completing the internship. Full details are available on the application which can be found by clicking here. Call Kate at 205-439-5512 with questions.

The intership program is being funded by a grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and YALSA as part of their Summer Reading Grant Program. 


The Teen Department is located on the 2nd floor and is especially for 6th-12th graders.

The teen area has four PCs and a Mac, booths for studying or hanging out, an XBOX ONE and Wii that are always available for playing, a large collection of graphic novels and manga, and much more. Come by and see us!
