Library no go for unaccompanied Alice teens

 

As Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed, under 15s for the time being can only gain entry to the Public Library if they are accompanied by a responsible adult. There is no such restriction in Darwin City libraries. A responsible adult is only required to be with children aged 10 and under. KIERAN FINNANE reports. 

Big beautiful monoculture

 

 

From a distance, it looks like a row of softdrink dispensing machines, but up close it is revealed in all its glory as a heavy-handed piece of signage.

LETTER: Sticking our heads in the sands of the Todd (re-published with Maxine Cook's comment)

It is remarkable how little comment there has been to mark the recent expiry of the 20 year moratorium that had prevented the construction of a flood mitigation dam on the Todd River north of Alice Springs, says letter-writer ALEX NELSON. He summarises what is known about the town's susceptibility to flooding and notes that the Imparja headquarters (pictured above) would be inundated by more than a metre of water above ground level in a 100 year flood. The Civic Centre and the Alice Springs Public Library are equally at risk.
