Karen DeLuca has worked in public libraries for 26 years, the last 11 as CEO at the Arnprior Public Library. With the introduction of innovative and collaborative programming at the library, Karen has expanded outreach focusing on the full range of seniors – those living at home, in retirement residences, long term care facilities and even hospitals. Her work has been recognized with the OLBA’s 2017 W.J. Robertson Medallion.

Karen’s hobbies include photography and gardening. Karen’s love of plants has expanded from her own outdoor perennials to a burgeoning houseplant garden both at home and in the library.
