We offer a large collection of resources and programs for students in primary and secondary school, including a special collection for HSC and preliminary students.
HSC lectures and study guides
HSC lectures and workshops are run throughout the year. Lectures cover a variety of subjects including English, Business and Legal Studies, Modern and Ancient History, Science as well as general exam techniques and study skills.
We also have a large collection of HSC and preliminary study guides available on a wide range of subjects. This collection is available for a three week loan period, but may be extended for an additional three weeks. We also hold a permanent HSC study guide collection in reference which is not for loan but may be used within the library for study and homework purposes.
The library holds a list of suggested related texts for the common HSC English module 'Text and Human Experiences'. For access to past HSC papers, please visit the Board of Studies website.
NSW Premier's Reading Challenge
Many schools and their students take part in the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge which aims to encourage a love of reading through quality literature. The recommended reading booklists aimed at Kindergarten students up to Year 9 students are available on the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge website.
The library holds many fiction and non-fiction titles from the PRC booklists.
All titles can be easily identified in the collection by K-2, 3-4, 5-6 and 7-9 challenge level sticker labels.
A variety of free online databases which cover modern and ancient history, health and legal resources, science, biographies, newspaper and journal articles can be found on the Information desk online. You can access most databases in the library or at home with your library card.
Quiet study areas
The library is a great place to visit for quiet study and assignment research. We have dedicated study areas and study rooms available at most library locations and single study cubicles at HJ Daley Library, Campbelltown.
