    Hi everyone,

    We have received a request to post a question:

    "Could you post a question about how to handle supervision for interns when you don't have a social worker on site (which is why we want an intern)?" So it would be great if you could please share with the question-asker how interns are supervised at your library, when there is no social worker present. Thanks!
