The Jill Sherlock Memorial Learning Assistance Library is an initiative of the Department of Education and Communities and the Sherlock Trust.  The library provides resources to assist students with additional learning and support needs.

The library has a comprehensive collection which is highly specialised and covers a range of subjects including attention deficit disorders, behaviour, social skills, learning difficulties, language and literacy.

Membership is free and available to parents, teachers and other educational personnel in NSW. You may apply for membership by joining online or by visiting the library.  Their online catalogue allows you to search the collection, but they also provide an "Ask a Librarian" service.

Loans can be mailed to you at no charge, but you are responsible for the return costs.
