Ms. Allison Pichowicz

My name is Ms. Pichowicz and I am the school librarian at Mackay Elementary School. I was fortunate to join the Mackay community at the end of last school year and am excited to spend the full year with everyone!

I have loved libraries ever since Mrs. S, my hometown children's librarian, let me into a Kindergarten storytime group that was already at capacity. (My mother pleaded that we were new in town and I had no friends. Somehow Mrs. S found one more spot for me.) Before I worked in education, I worked in theater and nonprofit administration.

When I am not in school, you can find me reading, enjoying theater, playing video games, or crafting. I'm a big fan of NCAA Women's Gymnastics and hope I can cheer on the LSU Tigers in-person someday!

You may email me at and I will respond to you within 24 hours.
