NT Archives Centre Refurbishment and NT Library Relocation
From Monday 18 December to early April 2024, the NT Archives Centre Reading Room will be closed as it undergoes refurbishment. The refurbishment is one of the steps taken in preparation for the relocation of the Northern Territory Library to the Charles Darwin University Education and Community Precinct, in mid-2024.
