Three questions with… Jonathan Younker

Jonathan Younker

Jonathan Younker is head of Library Systems and Technologies in the James A. Gibson Library. He has worked at Brock for almost 10 years — four as electronic services librarian and six in his current role. He lives in downtown St. Catharines with his wife Karen (who is nine months pregnant), their four-year-old son Xavier and their dachshund/pitbull mix, Sassy.

What do you like about your job?

I love the challenges of working with technology in such a complex and fluid environment, and I love working with extremely talented and creative individuals.

What do you do for fun?

I play guitar (badly) and piano, and like puttering around in my vegetable garden.

Where did you go on your last vacation?

My wife, son, and I drove down to Hunter, NY for Mountain Jam this summer; a four day music festival with 40+ bands in the Catskill mountains, where we camped with friends.  The highlight was getting to see and meet the Avett Brothers.
