Every three months, we invite a member of the public to serve a three-month term volunteering as our Guest Librarian. Engaged, connected, and committed to community, our Guest Librarians will bring fresh ideas to us, and act as library ambassadors in their neighbourhoods.
Hi there! My name is Beisan Zubi, and I'll be your guest librarian over the winter months.
I'm currently the Community Relations Manager at Communitech, and I'm looking forward to breaking the bubble between the tech community and our local community groups and change-makers.
I moved to Waterloo Region just over a year ago to take a position in communications at CIGI, before moving over to Communitech this summer. Since then, I've gotten a crash course in the tech and startup world, and I've been busy meeting amazing people and connecting with lots of inspiring non-profit agencies and companies.
Before I moved here, I lived and worked in Ottawa, most notably working for a couple years in communications for the NDP on Parliament Hill. I have a Creative Writing and Political Science double major from Concordia University, and earned my Master's in Communication and Culture from Ryerson University.
When I'm not at work, I love tequila, sharing small plates of food with friends, the Toronto Blue Jays and my two entertaining cats.
During my time as Guest Librarian, my focus will be on connecting children to creative and fun STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) learning opportunities.
Here are a few recommendations from Beisan, all available from Kitchener Public Library's collection.
