The Northern Territory Library is located within Parliament House, at State Square in Darwin’s central business district. It is the Northern Territory’s major reference and research library responsible for collecting, preserving and providing access to the Northern Territory’s contemporary and pioneering history.
The library is open to all and provides a relaxed environment in which to not only peruse the print and electronic collections, but also catch up with events making headlines in international, state and local newspapers. On permanent display to the public are significant works from the library’s stunning collections, showcasing the Territory’s eclectic and unique culture, as well as national exhibitions and displays. The Northern Territory Library also offers events featuring writers, storytellers and artists.
The location of the building holds historical significance as it resides on the site of the original Post Office and Telegraph Station, which were both badly damaged by a Japanese bombing raid on 19 February 1942. The historic lobby contains remnants of a wall of the Post Office and other important memorabilia relating to the history of the Northern Territory and WWII.
