Christina Karnatz

Development Director

Christina was born and raised in Fayetteville and has stayed to raise her own family. From Saturday morning trips with her mother, summer reading programs, paging as a teenager, studying in college, and now, bringing her own kids, the Fayetteville Public Library has always been a part of her life. She graduated from the University of Arkansas’ Walton College of Business and holds a Masters of Science in Communications from Purdue University. Christina joined the library in September 2020, an exciting time as it prepared to open the expansion and complete the Beyond Words capital campaign. In her role, Christina will serve as the organization’s lead major gifts officer, develop strategy for and oversee the development department, grow the library foundation’s endowments and annual fund, and see Beyond Words to its goal.
