Explore UT

Mar 02, 2013

Explore UT is the biggest open house in Texas! The LBJ Library will be participating in Explore UT on Saturday, March 2. This open house is for adults and kids of all ages and offers a glimpse into university life in classrooms, laboratories, studios, performance halls, museums, and library collections. With over 400 events scheduled on campus, there's something for everyone! 

The LBJ Library will be offering activities in addition to being free and open to the public March 2. Our special programming includes:

"Discover What’s In All Those Boxes at the LBJ Library" with Archivist Liza Talbot. She’ll talk about the LBJ Archives and how you can use the documents, photos and videos as well as answer questions about our holdings. This program is offered at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. in the Great Hall.

"A Fun Day with LBJ: Lyndon Johnson and You." This is an opportunity for you to design your own “flat” President Johnson to take with you on your adventures around campus. Come into the exhibit and learn about President Johnson and how his legacy affects you everyday. This program is offered on the Plaza while supplies last.
