Kristen Thornton-De Stafeno

Kristen Thornton-De Stafeno earned her Master of Science in Information Science from UAlbany in May 2017 and started as the Marketing Librarian here in White Plains two months later. Kristen got her start in libraries in 2013 when she began working as a part-time circulation clerk at the Pleasant Valley Library—it was while working there that she decided to pursue a career in libraries due to her passion for promoting equatable access to information and her first-hand knowledge that libraries have the ability to change lives. When not working behind the scenes on marketing content, you can find Kristen at the Welcome & Hub desks, co-hosting our monthly Poetry Slam, or assisting with one of our other adult programs. In her free time Kristen enjoys going to concerts and rewatching Vincent Price's filmography.

Responsibilities: Librarian II and Marketing.
