TexShare Card

The TexShare Card Program allows registered users of participating TexShare libraries to have direct, personal access to library materials not available at their local public or academic libraries. TexShare cards are issued by participating libraries and can be presented to a reciprocating library’s circulation desk to activate checkout privileges at that library. For additional information, you may visit the TexShare Card Program website.
Please note: A TexShare Card does not provide access to TexShare Databases or other online resources at libraries you visit. Please use the electronic resources available to you at your home library.
