Larry M.


I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wis. I spent time in the Marine Corps, which was the highlight of my life. I am married and have three children: Kelli, Becki, and Jason. My wife, Barbara, and I are both retired and making the best of it. I enjoy fishing, golfing, and experimenting with meals for the family.



Michelle K.

Michelle K.I was born and raised in our growing and glowing City of Firsts and take much pride in my responsibilities to offer a clean and safe environment for patrons and staff of KHCPL! I often say to my three children, “Be yourself, because there is no one else like you.” I believe the Kokomo Howard County Public Library is much like a museum, a place that offers numerous resources right at your fingertips whether it be for entertainment, work, social or a place to curl up in a quiet place and enjoy your favorite book! I am the custodian that knows patrons by name and will greet each one in passing with an enthusiastic and warm smile letting each patron feel as though they are home when they are here. I brag, boast and toast to my co-workers as well as the community for making it possible to have such an outstanding, safe and very tidy local library for all to enjoy!




Stephanie P.

I was raised outside of Bunker Hill and moved to Kokomo when I got married three years ago. I’ve been working for the library for almost 5 years and have enjoyed my time here. I never thought that an avid reader such as myself would have the honor to work for the library! I am most seen at the Annex, but sub at KHCPL South and KHCPL Main often. I am always willing to lend a helping hand to my coworkers and patrons alike! I am currently working toward my bachelor’s in nursing at IU Kokomo, and there is never a dull moment between studying nursing books and the books I find the time to read from the library! When I have the spare time, I also enjoy jogging/biking, going on mission trips, watching football, and being with my family.



Sue L.

Sue L.I grew up outside of Kansas City Kansas. In my early 20’s I returned to Kokomo, where I was born, and have been here since that time. I love people and love being helpful. I take cleanliness, clutter  and germ removal very seriously and treat the Library facilities like they are my own. You might catch me frowning in bad weather when rain, mud, slush, snow and salt get tracked into the buildings, but as soon as I see you, a bright smile will break across my face. After all, you are the reason I strive to keep the facilities clean, safe and inviting. If you see me, give me a wave and a smile; it will make my day brighter.
