Your new library system.

A simpler, smarter future.

The Northern Territory Library is pleased to announce that we will be delivering an exciting new library system across the Territory from mid-2016, providing Territorians with a simpler and smarter library experience.

A modern library system is critical to the functioning of any library, and the new system will make it easier to find materials and provide improved access to library catalogues and resources on mobile devices.

Built on a cloud-based platform and designed to support inter-library collaboration, the new system will take advantage of improvements in technology, offering a more user friendly experience to Territorians.

There are nearly 100,000 people who use the current library system, accessing almost one million items across 52 libraries – a network of 32 public and community libraries, as well as school libraries and several government departmental libraries.

Bringing our Northern Territory library network into a modern, more functional system will be of great advantage to all library users within the Territory.

For further information contact your local library or email us at ls.ntl@nt.gov.au

Remembering Kahlin Compound

Kahlin CompundNorthern Territory Library, Parliament House

Kahlin Aboriginal Compound existed at Myilly Point for nearly twenty-five years. Darwin’s Aboriginal workforce and their families were required by law to live there. Stolen Generations policies of the day also saw children of mixed descent removed to Kahlin. Photographs and oral accounts tell the incredible story of Kahlin Compound – a story that is fundamental to understanding Darwin, past, present and future.

Free and open to the public.


All  events will be held at the Northern Territory Library, Parliament House, unless otherwise specified.
