Black History Month National Park Service Promotional Poster

Poster honoring Black History Month and promoting Black History sites in the National Park System. It was created by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior.

The UT Tyler Robert R. Muntz Library is pleased to announce that we have a book display honoring Black History Month. The display of books and photos is located on the third floor of the library, and it will remain there until the end of the month. We would like to note that all books inside the display case are available to be checked out. So, if anything catches your eye, feel free to go down to the Circulation Desk. A staff member will be happy to open the case for you so you check the book out. If you look up any of the titles listed below in the catalog now, it will say they are checked out. No need to worry. They are checked out to the display case. Feel free to ask for any of the books. Our book display features the following titles this year.
