Name: Edward Karek
Occupation: Communications Officer
Location: Yorkville Avenue & Yonge Street
Frequent trips to the local library as a teenager, convinced library staff to give Edward Karek a job. His persistence paid off. He started off in a volunteer position and then moved up through the ranks into his current title as Communications Officer for the Toronto Public Library. For Karek, it’s all about getting the word out on daily activities taking place at the library’s 99 locations. When he’s not taking in the opera season, you can catch him rollerblading or acting in the occasion theatre play.
