HSC support continues at Valley libraries

Year 12 students looking for a quiet place to study need look no further than Clarence Valley libraries. On Tuesday, September 13, the Sir Earle Page Library and Education Centre in Grafton will again offer free Wi-Fi, printing, study space and refreshments. Regional librarian, Kathryn Breward, encouraged students to come alone or with a bunch of study buddies. Library members and non members are all welcome. Trained staff will be available for research inquiries. She said the study nights offered an opportunity for students to charge up their study routine and take advantage of library facilities. “This is the second year the library service has offered this opportunity for the Valley’s HSC students and we feel it is a way for the library to support local young people to do their best in their exams and help kick-start their future,” she said. “We already maintain a collection of HSC study guides and related resources in all libraries and these evenings will give students exclusive access to the library as well as a unique and supportive study environment. Some students find they need some time out from studying at home; others might find the group study environment helps them focus.” The next HSC study session is free to attend and will be held at Sir Earle Page Library and Education Centre in Grafton on Tuesday, September 13, from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. No bookings are required and students are free to arrive and leave when they like. For more information call 6641 0100.
