My name is Iurgi (although, it can also be written as Jurgi). This is my main blog where I blog about life, libraries, books, and sometimes short fiction and poetry. 

My background is in media studies and education. I made some short films and occasionally collaborated with news outlets as a freelancer. Then, I worked as a teacher for a few years - which was exhausting but unbelievably rewarding.

Now, I count myself very lucky to be surrounded by books, movies, music, culture, history, art… and working for the community at the library. It took me nearly four decades to figure it out but I love my job.

I'm also the convenor of the ALIA Graphic Novels and Comics special interest group and a freedom of information advocate.
