Seriously Newport News?

  • I was trying to access the online catalog for the library
  • then I stumbled upon the Summer Youth Employment Program
  • you know, just your basic summer library job for kids who are 16-24
  • ... but then I realized you had to qualify by being one (or more) of the following:
  • behind in school credits
  • behind in grade level
  • basic skill deficient
  • juvenile offender
  • pregnant or parenting
  • school dropout
  • homeless, runaway, or foster child
  • ha!
  • Are these kids really competent to be working at a library (of all places)?
  • ... and, are these the type of kids you really want working for you?
