Do I Take the Irrelevant Internship?

Dear Experts, I signed up at my college career center for a summer 2009 cooperative education, but I keep getting irrelevant internships that I do not want. I indicated to the coop adviser I wanted to work with non-profit organizations that have an international focus so I can learn more about international issues and it could be applicable to my academic credits (I'm an International Studies major). I recently was contacted by a literary agency for a summer internship. Should I take these kind of internships just for experience and stipend/wages, or do I apply to internships that I'm actually interested in?
