The New York Public Library's Teen Reading Ambassadors internship program brings together 10th–12th grade students to help further the Library's mission to inspire lifelong learning in others, particularly young children. Ambassadors work at NYPL After School programs across the city providing tutoring and literacy enrichment activities to children ages 6–12. They also show children the joy of reading by connecting them with engaging books from the Library’s collections!
November is Native American Heritage Month and the Teen Reading Ambassadors have chosen books for kids featuring Indigenous authors, illustrators and narratives. From stories about nature and the history of Indigenous peoples to space adventures and bilingual picture books, there's something for everyone in the reading recommendations below!
