Kristine Pioch


Public Relations Librarian

After a long career in newspapers, Kristine joined Willard in 2015 as public relations librarian. Her responsibilities include preparing library promotional materials, keeping the library calendars and website up to date, writing news releases, and handling Willard’s Facebook page. She also works on the information desk, where she enjoys helping guests find good books.
Kristine is a graduate of Central Michigan University, where she majored in journalism.
“I’ve been going to libraries as long as I can remember,” she said. “One of my favorite memories is when as a teenager I went to the library every week during the summer and checked out seven books to read—one for each day of the week.”
She also enjoys traveling, finding bargains at garage sales, and visiting her daughter in Cincinnati.
