Needed to do some printing and this was the nearest library. Absolutely amazed that the library was within this beautiful government building. Even has a gift shop! Staff so helpful - well worth a look.

Free music at Friday lunch. Free internet. Free talks by Authors. Free novels to swap. Excellent community information board. Kids club. Craft classes. It is a learning hub not a dusty book vault.

Lovely quiet environment in a great building. Fantastic selection of reference books. You can sit and read, study or just walk through and browse.

Anybody can pop by this site which is located in the small downtown area. Darwin is not a big place! Use the free wifi to keep in touch with friends at home and relax in a comfy chair.
