Today, she is extremely happy to be a part of the Osceola Library team, working as the Youth Services Librarian for the Hart Memorial Central Library.

Jaclyn Luster, Youth Specialist

Jaclyn started with the Library system in October of 2020 at West Osceola. She is currently attending Rutgers School of Communication and Information for her MI-Master of Information focus in School Librarianship. Jaclyn worked in the hospitality industry for the last 15 years, including with Walt Disney World, Disney's Youth Education, and Disney Cruise Line. When Jaclyn isn't enjoying STEAM activities (which she loves!) you can catch her reading Nonfiction History books or the 641 section (where the cook books are). If she could, she would love to own the whole collection of the "Who Was or What is" Juvenile Nonfiction books. You may contact her at jaclyn.luster@osceolalibrary.org.
