INTERNSHIPS FOR TEENS
Looking for a meaningful and creative internship? Want to be part of a team where you can develop ideas and implement them from beginning to end? Talk with us about our Internships.
 
  • Graphic Design and Social Media Internships
Become the Osterville Village Library’s Young Adult graphic designer or social media director:
  • Our Young Adult (YA) area is a blank slate waiting for your ideas. We need you to create a well-designed banner and logo for signs and web content; and more.
  • Help us by developing ways to use social media and video production so Barnstable teens can create and share online book trailers and fan-fiction/art.
 
  • Program Internships
Want experience working with young children? Become one of our program interns and be directly involved in the planning and implementing of creative programs of preschool and school-age children.  Contact us.
 
  • Library Community Service
If you prefer a broader experience, talk to us about fulfilling community service hours by helping with general library work in our circulation, tech services and/or programs departments.
 
FOR TEACHERS
Osterville Village Library services for middle and high schools include:   
  • Book Loan Services: Email, call, or visit us 2 weeks ahead of time and we will compile a collection of up to 25 books and media tailored to a specific lesson topic. [Books can be loaned for 4 weeks with your ‘educators’ library card’ and renewed for 2 weeks more.]  
 
  • Class Field Trips: Email, call, or visit us to set up a field trip to our library for:
    • student research or booktalks
    • an introduction to our library building and collections
    • a lesson on how to search for and place reserves on books/media in the CLAMS catalog
    • a lesson on how to download ebooks onto a tablet from our OverDrive collection.
 
  • Student Displays: Do you have a special collection of students’ writings, artwork or projects that you would like displayed for the public to enjoy? Contact us to talk about the possibilities; we’ll even help you host a bring-a-parent-to-the-library event.
 
FOR HOMESCHOOLERS, SCOUTS AND MORE

Every service the Osterville Village Library offers to traditional teachers we offer to homeschooling parents as well… and more.


 Ask us about: book loan services, student displays, and class field trips.

Our library spaces are available to groups of homeschoolers for lessons and events. On your next library visit, talk with our Youth Services Librarian (a former homeschooling parent) about programs and services tailored to fit your needs.
