The Public Library Association's Inclusive Internship Initiative (III)<http://www.ala.org/pla/initiatives/plinterns> offers paid, summer-long internships to high school students at their local public library. Over the course of the summer, each intern works with his or her library mentor on a community-based learning project. Through III, students from diverse backgrounds are introduced to careers in librarianship, library mentors practice leadership skills, and host libraries grow new audiences through outreach and programming.

For more information, please see the FAQ<http://www.ala.org/pla/initiatives/plinterns/faq> and Guidelines<http://www.ala.org/pla/initiatives/plinterns/guidelines>.

Small, rural, tribal, and pueblo libraries are strongly encouraged to apply!

PLA will present a free, "office hours"-type webinar on Jan 7, 2020 at 11:00 AM Pacific. During this webinar, past III mentors who will share their insights and experiences from participating in this program; and PLA staff will go over the application process, deadlines, and program requirements. PLA staff and past mentors will be available to answer any questions your library has about applying to or participating in the program. Register for the free webinar.<http://www.ala.org/pla/education/onlinelearning/webinars/iiiofficehours>
