For Immediate Release
January 4, 2021

Juneau – The Alaska State Library is currently accepting applications for a summer internship at a public library. The intern will be reimbursed for approved travel costs, per diem ($60/day for 50 days, $3000) and an honorarium. The internship is sponsored by the Alaska Library Network.

The Alaska State Library Internship Project is a grant-funded project that will place an intern who has recently completed or is near completion of their Master’s degree in Library or Information Science to work in an Alaska public library for two months in the summer of 2021. The goals of the project are to provide assistance to public libraries in Alaska who lack staff expertise to sustain long-term projects that would benefit their libraries and communities, provide internship and professional development opportunities to MLIS students and increase the number of MLIS students applying for jobs in Alaska. Application period will close February 19, 2021.
