Outreach and Community Learning Services


UT Libraries are committed to assisting schools and other non-university-affiliated groups by offering literacy instruction classes and facility tours. We are dedicated to providing a positive, interactive learning experience for all visitors. During these sessions, a librarian will provide an individualized service program to meet your specific needs.
