This summer we had an intern from local Troy High School. "Troy Tech" is a magnet school ranked as one of the top high schools in the United States. The Troy Tech program requires a 150-hour internship to be completed - usually during the summer before the senior year. Matt Timms, son of Hope's School of Graduate Studies Ministry Department Chair, Dr. David Timms, elected to do his internship in the Darling Library. He served the library well doing a wide variety of tasks that included the creation of library usage statistics reports, writing a recommendation for a new improved people counter, weeding out old periodicals, and preparing discarded books for shipping to Better World Books.
We hated to see him go!
