Teen Summer Job at the Maud Marks Library

The Maud Marks Library is excited to announce that this summer, the library will be hiring 2 summer interns for 9 weeks.  The library is looking for motivated, high energy high school students ages 16-18 to help us out during our summer reading program. 

The applications are available until May 15.  You may also come into the library for a copy.  These applications must be returned in person before the May 15 deadline.  It would be a good idea to include a resume with the application.

Should you get the job, you would be required to work Monday- Friday, 1 PM- 5 PM from June 3 to August 2.  Among your duties would be shelving and helping with our summer reading program events.

The Maud Marks Library is excited to provide this opportunity for teens in the Katy community.
