About the Lithgow LGA
Homework Zone is a free service offered at Lithgow Library every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3.30pm to 5.30pm during school terms.
A fully qualified teacher is on hand to provide expert advice on all school assignments and homework questions. Help can also be given for general study skills, such as essay writing and research skills.
This service is specifically targeted for students in Years 3-12. There’s no need to book, just turn up for support for your studies.
Join us this year on Wednesday 25 May at 10.30am for a fun Storytime session, featuring special guest story-reader, Mayor Maree Statham, reading this year’s book ‘I Got This Hat’. Storytime is aimed at pre-schoolers and everyone is welcome to this free session. No bookings are required – just join in to hear engaging stories, sing fun songs, and make a craft to take home.
The NSW Electoral Commission also runs information seminars for people thinking of standing for election, in which the legal obligations and responsibilities that candidates should be familiar with are explained.

- Assess community priorities when planning for Lithgow’s future.
Please take a few minutes to complete the customer service questionnaire. Your comments will enable us to see how we're doing overall and find out how we can improve.
The draft policy is available from Customer Service and on Council’s website. Written submissions addressed to the General Manager and marked “Submission on Draft Policy” must be received by 4pm on Friday 10th June 2016 to be considered in the finalisation of the policy.
