Jennifer Driscoll

Jennifer D. is a Senior Librarian of Youth Services and the San Rafael Branch of Pasadena Library. When she was young, she was once grounded for reading too much. Things haven’t changed much since then and she loves escaping into a good story. When she’s not reading she enjoys watching old musicals, scouring flea markets, taking way too many photos and letterpressing. If she could have any pet she wanted she would have a wombat or a manatee.
