Karen Bordonaro

Karen Bordonaro

Karen Bordonaro is a liaison and teaching and learning librarian in the James A. Gibson Library. She has been at Brock since January 2006, commuting every day across the border from her home in Tonawanda, New York. She lives with her husband, Joe, as well as son Matt and daughter Katie. They have two dogs (both Great Pyrenees/St. Bernard mixes) and two cats. She holds a PhD from the State University of New York at Buffalo.

What do you like about your job?

I like the variety, I like the people, I like the setting. I like Canadians. I like working with undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff, and I especially like working with international students. I like the teaching and learning work that librarians do at Brock in addition to the opportunity to do our own research here as well.

What do you do for fun?

I read a lot (mainly history and historical fiction), I like to travel, and I love learning languages – Spanish, German, and I am currently learning French. Some day I would like to master Icelandic too.

Where did you go on your last vacation?

My husband and I went to Iceland last year for our anniversary. It was actually my third trip there. It is a fascinating country with an incredibly unique history and culture. And luckily we were there before the volcano exploded.
