About

Ashleigh McKergow

I work in public libraries and I am a Bachelor of Information Studies student at CSU just shy of graduating. Previously I trained as a Library Technician but craved to know more and so I dived into the Bachelors. I am Brisbane born and bred, and grew up in libraries and school library backrooms thanks to my family who are passionate about libraries, reading and general nerd culture. Since 2009 I have either been studying or working in libraries and have had the pleasure of working in school, academic, special, public and parliamentary libraries.

I am also the Tours Captain of 8th New Librarians’ Symposium and one of the Co-Founders of ‘Picture book’ Book Club (@picturebookbc) which runs a monthly Twitter chat aimed at adults on the first Thursday of every month on a theme surrounding picture books.
