Meet Catherine, our resident librarian

IMG_8331--Catherine Gareau had been a research librarian for over 25 years when she suffered a stroke that left her unable to work as she focused on re-learning basic skills.

“They say people who have strokes lose what they love the most and I definitely talked a lot, so I lost my words for some time,” she said.

As part of her rehabilitation, Catherine was encouraged to volunteer. “I thought it would be hard to find a place that could accommodate me, but the hospital has been amazing — I learn something new every day,” she said.

It didn’t take long for Catherine to bring her love of reading to St. Joe’s. Just a month after joining our team, she created a mobile library that brings donated books around to patient units.

“Books are excellent companions. Some people are sleeping or not interested, but many patients are avid readers and when I see their eyes light up — it makes it all worth it.”

Volunteer at St. Joe’s
Volunteers are an integral part of our team. If you’re interested in becoming at St. Joe’s volunteer, join us at an information session — held on the third Tuesday of every month at 10 a.m. Space is limited — to register, email volunteers@stjoestoronto.ca or call 416-530-6450.
