The Northern Territory Library is located in the Parliament building and not only has books, but some wonderful displays about Northern Territory culture and history. Also some fascinating historical films. Well worth a visit!

There are a number of items on exhibition in the entrance to the Library and many more once you get inside. There are stories and artworks on the bombing of Darwin and a giant embroidered mural which is spectacular.

All the items for researching an environmental science book review in one place. A quiet place to read and review. Peaceful and studious.

I saw a good display of aboriginal art at the library, an excellent photography exhibition and the wall sized patch work rug depicting the names of people who were stationed in Darwin in World War 1. More importantly it is close to the Supreme Court, in which there is a wonderful mosaic of an aboriginal original (which is also on display). There is also what I consider a wonderful original piece of the hand prints of women in custody and their thoughts on the justice system, as well as portraits of the gallery of judges who have presided. You can also sit in the upstairs gallery while court is in session. However out of courtesy we refrained from doing that. However we were happy with with the glimpses we got through the glass.

The library is a hidden gem inside Parliament House. We were fortunate to view a history display where we gained inside to life in Darwin in the late 1800’s, Well worth the visit.

Has a small display on the history of Darwin and its people.
If you are going to Parliament House it is worth visiting the library as well.

As part of the Parliament House Tour we were taken into the NT Library which is located within the building. We were shown some local art work and photographs in relation to WWII and think we recognise a relative. The Library Staff were so helpful in providing us with information and avenues to research the photo further. The outcome will not only help us with our Family History, it will also help the Library in putting another piece of the information puzzle together which may in turn help others as well. Thank you so much with your assistance so far :)

I would love to review the Library but unfortunately it has never been open in the evenings or on Sundays when I would like to access it. Surely with the amount of people visiting and living in the city 1 or 2 nights a week let alone late Saturday is not to much to ask. Other library services charge small visitors joining fee or a bond which could be used ensure resources were returned.

The librarians were most helpful giving us information about our relative Felix Holmes who lived in Darwin from 1890 to 1928. Even told us where to see the collection of his photographs from that time.
