Please welcome Cenza Fulco, another ALIA Access conference speaker, to the blog!

1. Can you please give us a taste of what you will be speaking about at the conference?
I will be talking about Read Like a Demon – a literacy program between the Casey Cardinia Library Corporation and the Melbourne Football Club.  I’ll be speaking about our partnership and the great program, and it’s affect on primary students in the City of Casey.

 2. In your field of work, what is inspiring, exciting or challenging you at the moment?
As a Community Engagement Librarian in such a huge growth area I’m excited by community programs that we run through the Library.  Whether it’s regular programs that we run for babies and preschoolers, programs like Read Like a Demon for school age children, or watching staff get enthusiastic about  making a book and CD with a community group…work is always exciting and always offering new opportunities.

 3. If you will be visiting Brisbane for the first time, what are you looking forward to the most? If you are a local or know Brisbane well, please share your favourite thing to do or place to visit in Brisbane.
I’m looking forward to better weather – I’m from Melbourne and it’s currently 11 degrees!

 4. What is the best experience you have ever had at a library conference?
I always enjoy learning about what other Libraries are doing and catching up with old work colleagues.  It was great to listen to Tom Palmer speak about the Premier League Reading Stars in the UK (State Library Victoria Conference) as it was inspiration for our Read Like a Demon program.
