We have an extensive collection of classic and contemporary fiction, non-fiction research materials, Personal Interest Projects (PIP) samples, and HSC study guides available for you to borrow. Browse and reserve your copies through our Library Catalogue.

Explore the Illawarra, its people, history, and environment through our Local Studies collection. It is located on Level 1 of Wollongong Library. It includes a wide variety of materials, including a growing number of online resources.

Study Rooms

Need a quiet space to study by yourself or in a small group? We have desks at all our libraries, and study rooms at Wollongong, Corrimal, Dapto, and Thirroul. See our Rooms for Study or Hire page for details.

Take 5 to Revive

HSC preparation can be challenging, so take a break from studying and take 5 at the library!

Enjoy free snacks and ease stress with mindful activities in a quiet space. These open sessions will provide access to fidget spinners and stress toys, and occasionally feature therapy dog visits! If the urge to study does arise, you can make use of our study guides, past exam papers, and online resources.

Take 5 to Revive will run during Term 3 at all seven of our library locations (Corrimal, Dapto, Helensburgh, Thirroul, Unanderra, Warrawong, and Wollongong) during opening hours.
