Consultation deadline extended until 13 September 2021

The Northern Territory (NT) community is invited to have its say on the future vision of the NT Library which is moving from Parliament House to the new Education and Community Precinct (ECP) in 2024 as part of the historic Darwin City Deal.

The new NT Library will be co-located with the Charles Darwin University Library, enriching the visitor experience through shared services. This will also ensure better access to the library experience for people based in remote communities, through digital collections, virtual events and online programs.

The co-located ECP libraries will be a site for lifelong learning, from early childhood through to formal study and adult learning in a modern facility that provides exciting, interactive and high-quality experiences.

The location of the NT Library in the university environment will enable greater connection between its collections and the research environment, better placing the NT Library as a library for the Territory’s future as well as one focused on the Territory’s past.

The NT Library will focus on building new audiences, particularly children, school students and tertiary students, Aboriginal people and regional and remote audiences will contribute to the revitalisation of the Darwin CBD by attracting residents and visitors through the delivery of diverse collections and inspiring new learning programs.

The NT Library will work with Larrakia Nation and other Aboriginal community organisations to ensure the NT Library is a culturally safe space that celebrates Aboriginal achievement, language and culture.

The NT Government is seeking community input into the Library’s future spaces, programs, services, and collections.

Submissions will be accepted via this website until 5pm 13 September 2021
