The Hutchinson Memorial Library welcomed a new Library Director on Monday, December 10, 2018.
Whitney Parrillo has been working in libraries for the last eight years in Illinois and Wisconsin. She started her career as Library Director for the Astoria Public Library in Astoria, Illinois. There she served a rural community of 1,200 people and was the Director for five years. Following a move for her husband's career, Whitney served as Assistant Director at the Silvis Public Library in Silvis, Illinois. After moving to Madison, Wisconsin in January 2018 with her family, Whitney worked in Reference and Adult Services at the Fitchburg Public Library. After dreaming about getting back to country living, Whitney and her husband Joe bought a small farm outside of Portage. They have a young son. They are all excited to get some sheep and chickens in the spring.
Whitney is excited for the opportunity to be Director at Hutchinson Memorial and is looking forward to serving the community of Randolph. Please stop in and meet our new director!
