With the Darwin Festival well underway, residents of property in Darwin might be feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the noise and goings-on.
The City Library is therefore offering a quiet refuge for those who wish to stay out of the limelight during the Festival period.
Up until August 25, the library is offering extended hours to provide the community with a place to enjoy their favourite paperback or use some free wi-fi.
In addition, the library has a programme of activities for the kids to indulge in during the Festival. There is something to suit all tastes, from circus fun to puppet shows and music workshops.
The highlight will surely be next Friday (August 23), when kids will get the chance to see and take photos of some native Australian wildlife.
The library is open until 7 pm on weekdays and until 12 pm on Saturdays.
Activities will be held at Civic Square in the evenings, from 5.30 to 6.30 pm, so it's a great opportunity to let the kids have some fun before dinner.
The library's initiative is just one example of how Darwin is a family-friendly city that caters to the entire community, even during the busy Festival period.
The full programme of activities can be viewed on the library's website.
