Any social workers willing to share their experiences?

    We have a social work intern who started her internship at our library yesterday. She is interested in talking or corresponding with anyone who is a social worker or intern at a public library. She is hoping to learn about other's experiences and hear what suggestions someone who is doing this work might have.
