Summer Jobs


Summer is the perfect time to earn some extra cash, whether it's  the job of your dreams or a daily slog.
If you're working hard for your money or working hard for no money, a.k.a. the Summer Internship,
you'll find some solidarity with these summer job reads. Have the summer off? Get all of the experience with
none of the work!

Give a Little, Help a Lot!

This season we have two opportunities to help others less fortunate.  We are now accepting donations for the Share Your Holidays Food Drive and the Toys for Tots program.   There is a big box set up by the Children's Reference desk.  Just bring your nonperishable food donations or unwrapped new toy donations.  Drop them in the box and we will see that they get to a family or child in need.
