Library Events Calendar

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Huston-Tillotson University has transitioned to an online-only model for the Fall 2020 Semester.

In compliance with recommendations from the City of Austin, the Centers for Disease Control, and President Burnette, the Downs-Jones Library has therefore cancelled all in-person events for the Fall 2020 Semester.

The Downs-Jones Library looks forward to engaging with students online and in virtual classrooms, and celebrating our HT Rams in Fall 2020 with exciting activities! Watch this space for updates and announcements.
