HSC Lock In Events 

Are you a Year 12 student and need a quiet place to study during the lead up to the HSC exam period? Strathfield Library hosts events exclusively for Year 12 students.

Once you are in the building you are 'locked-in'. You have the option to leave the building, however you will not be able to come back in.

Lock In events have ended for 2017. Dates for 2018 will be announced as they become available.
