Nhulunbuy Library

Nhulunbuy is situated on the east coast of Arnhem Land on the Northern Territory side of the Gulf of Carpentaria, about 600 km east of Darwin. The town commenced in 1971 with a special town lease on Aboriginal land to service the bauxite mine. There is a population of approximately 4200 people.

The Library started it’s life in the town’s mining camps as a “library” and then through public pressure developed into a Public Library before morphing into the Nhulunbuy Community Library.  To track the existence of the Library, we followed the history of the town and traced the role of the library mainly through the newspapers and other printed information available.  Our research was incorporated in a display within the library and also placed on the Nhulunbuy Library History webpage.
