My name is Gordana and I’ve had the privilege of joining Coquitlam Public Library team last month.
I received my undergraduate degree in Education and Linguistics from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, and Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of British Columbia. I have over 20 years of experience working in academic and public libraries in Canada, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia.
I have an amazing 21-year-old son for whom I hope to model tolerance and a love of learning. He is teaching me as much as I’m teaching him every day. I’m a firm believer in lifelong learning, social development, cultural understanding, and the transformational power that education has on individuals, communities, and nations.
My research interests include design thinking, information literacy, and information-seeking behavior. In my free time, I like to hike, cook, read, travel and entertain.
