About Muntz Library

Muntz Library is located at The University of Texas at Tyler. This blog seeks to keep users up to date on the events, programs, resources, and changes in the Robert R. Muntz Library.

Canned Food Drive



The Library is currently hosting a “Food for Fines” event.  The drive ends on December 20th.

Help us stock the upcoming Campus Food Pantry!  Even if you don’t have fines, you may still contribute to this worthy cause! Donations may be dropped off at the Library Circulation Desk.

After The Human Library


The Human Library Event at Muntz Library on October 12th was in a word: “Exceptional’!  If you missed it, you really missed!  We had authors, motivators, law enforcement, veterans, religious leaders, survivors, and achievers!  Every person that shared a piece of themselves made an impact on someone.  Many ask the question:

What is a Human Library? Simply stated, it is individuals presenting themselves as a book, to be read through conversation with another human being.  It is humans interacting with one another and “hearing” another person’s journey, beliefs, accomplishments, endeavors, struggles, and victories.  It is an opportunity to see a person beyond the external.  As a child, many of us learned the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”  The Human Library is the same concept, “Don’t judge a person by how they appear.”

We look forward to doing this again next year.  Hope you will be able to participate!
