Staff Introductions: Virginia Hilbert, Marketing Director

Get to know the HMMPL staff! Each week, we’re featuring one of our amazing staff members. This week, meet Virginia Hilbert!  She is the Marketing Director for HMMPL.  Here are a few fun facts about her!

Hobbies:  I recently told a friend that I’m not artistic but I enjoy crafts. My mom is a talented seamstress so she taught me to sew at an early age and I still enjoy it. I also like to knit, create paper crafts, read – of course, and write.

Favorite Book Genre:  I love to browse craft books for ideas and inspiration. I also like a good cozy mystery!

Years at HMMPL: 15 years

Favorite part of working at the Library: Hearing stories about how the library has positively impacted patrons is my favorite part of working at the library. When I was a young mom, I met one of my closest friends during a library storytime event for babies. Now, it just makes me smile to hear about other friendships that have formed within our walls.

Favorite Snack: Popcorn and ice cream – separately and together!

Where will patrons find you at the Library:  I spend a lot of time in the Marketing Department on the third floor, but I love walking around the Library and running into patrons, many I’ve known for several years, and hearing about their favorite new title or how they are enjoying the library.
