Summer interns

This summer we are fortunate have three students from the Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science volunteering at the library. They are cataloging, answering reference questions, covering the circulation desk, shelf reading, creating displays, word processing, assisting with programs, and working on assigned projects.Two of the students recently started the program. Pete is a former editorial assistant and has his undergraduate degree in Psychology. Pete also works part-time for the Boston Public Library.

Sandy is the co-owner of a back products store and an active member of the Acton Congregational Church. Sandy has also volunteered at her son's high school library.

Martha will be finishing her course work in December. She was a Classics major and currently works for an academic publishing company.  Martha previously worked at the Peabody Essex Museum and the Witch House in Salem.

We are blessed to have these talented and motivated students assisting us.
