We are pleased to announce the appointment of Rebecca Anthony who will be joining the team as the Centre for Youth Literature’s Learning Programs Officer. Bec will be responsible for the development and support of the State Library Victoria’s programming for engaging young people with books, stories and writing.
Bec brings to the team her extensive arts administration experience having worked on programming for Future Foundations, Melbourne Day, Melbourne Regatta and Roarhouse. Bec first joined the Library to work with the Centre’s team as the Events Officer for the 2015 Reading Matters overseeing conference logistics and the national touring program. Earlier this year she programmed the successful Kids Big Book Spectacular which resulted in thousands of young people engaging with the Library and its collections.
