New manager of Mint Hill Library announced
December 10, 2008 – Visitors to the library in Mint Hill will soon be seeing a friendly new face. It was announced today that David Sniffin will soon be taking the helm as the new manager for the Mint Hill branch of the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County (PLCMC). Former library manager Neily Trump retired in September 2008.
"David Sniffin’s exceptional experiences as a manager and community leader, both in Richland County, South Carolina, and in Mecklenburg County, have prepared him well to take a leadership role as the manager of the Mint Hill Library," said David Singleton, PLCMC's Director of Library Experiences who provides overall management for the library’s 24 public service locations. "Library service is greatly valued by the Mint Hill community, and I look forward to seeing David's work with the public and the staff to provide exceptional services as the community continues to grow and change."
The new library manager is no stranger to serving the community. Sniffin has dedicated the past eight years at PLCMC to the Beatties Ford Road Branch Library, first as a librarian and most recently as the manager of Information Services. Prior to that he served for five years at the Richland County Public Library in Columbia, South Carolina. He received his graduate degree in Library Information Services from the University of South Carolina, with an undergraduate degree in Sociology. A resident of Charlotte, he has been a 5-year volunteer for the Wachovia Championship golf tournament and is currently engaged.
The newly-appointed manager expressed enthusiasm for his future role at Mint Hill. "I'm looking forward to working with the Mint Hill community of readers to enhance the library’s positive impact in the area and to support the library as a central meeting place for the residents of Mint Hill," said David Sniffin. "It will be a pleasure to continue cultivating the relationships that the dedicated Mint Hill library staff and former manager have made with the patrons and the community."
Sniffin will assume his new role at the Mint Hill Library on December 29, 2008.
Founded in 1903 as a Carnegie Free Library, PLCMC has become one of the premiere libraries in the country with 24 locations, 1.6 million volumes, and 28,000 videos, DVDs and CDs. The library sponsors a variety of community-based programs – from computer- and Internet-education workshops to the award-winning Novello Festival of Reading, a celebration that accentuates the fun of reading and learning. As a public library, we are dedicated to our mission of expanding minds, empowering individuals and enriching our community.
