Markham Public Library | Community Librarian, Business & Employment
Work Phone: 905-513-7977 ext. 2856 Website: Markham Public Library


As a community librarian for Markham Public Library, my “librarian”
role is very different from how you may picture a traditional
librarian. Instead of working with books and within the library
branch, I go beyond the library’s walls and try to gain a broader
understanding of how our libraries contribute to community life. I go
into Markham’s communities, with a specific focus on the business,
employment and entrepreneurial communities and listen to the needs and
priorities of its members. My role also is very involved with creating
partnerships with other organizations and ensuring that resources are
being promoted and shared to those who need it. Markham is a very
active and rich community and has a lot to offer its community members
and I hope to play an integral part in ensuring the continued learning
and growth of businesses, startups, entrepreneurs and job seekers in
