Library Take Out

What is “Library Take Out” ?

“Library Take Out” is a new initiative for UT campus residence halls. Librarians will come to you and provide fun and engaging programming  that will allow your residents to not only become better students, but citizens as well.

Our presentations can last anywhere from 15 heart-stopping, intriguing minutes to one raucous, rabble rousing hour.

SIGN UP HERE or contact Ingrid Ruffin, email: if you have any questions. Please make request at least one week before expected event.
