Happy #roalddahlday! Celebrated every year on the anniversary of his birthday, this unofficial holiday celebrates all the characters created by the much loved and read children’s author whose most popular books included Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

While Dahl, considered to be one of the most widely read and influential British writers of all time, is primarily known for his fantasy fiction stories for children, he also wrote screenplays for films and television shows, including the screenplay for the popular musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

We are excited to introduce you to Vicky, one of our summer interns. Here's what she had to say about interning at OCLC: Working with OCLC has been a one of a kind learning experience. Not only was I given many opportunities to expand my technical knowledge but I was also given a supportive and welcoming work atmosphere to thrive in. I learned so many new skills and was lucky enough to meet some amazing role models and mentors along the way. OCLC has such a strong sense of community and I’m thankful to have been a part of it. #lifeatOCLC
We are excited to introduce you to Nora, one of our summer interns. Here's what she had to say about interning at OCLC: As a Tech company, OCLC’s culture is high-energy and extremely efficient, yet the work-life balance is perfect. Collaboration happens everywhere and the organization is one big family that is full of appreciation and support for each member. I was given significant opportunities and encouragement to learn and develop new skills. I also communicated with the upper management and employees of other departments to gain insights on the company’s big picture. For me, this is the best corporate internship experience that always made me feel welcomed, productive, and confident. #lifeatOCLC
