TexShare Card

The TexShare Card...Imagine a Library as Big As Texas!

A TexShare Card provides you with borrowing privileges from more than 500 participating libraries across the state.

1. Getting a TESHARE CARD

If you're a registered patron of a participating library, you may request a TexShare Card from your home library. You must be a patron in good standing and have demonstrated compliance with your library's exisiting borrowing policies. Use Find-A-Library  to see if your library participates in the TexShare Card program and to see the eligibility requirements.


You have responsibilities as a TexShare Card holder. You should become familiar with the policies and restrictions of the lending library, as failure to abide by library policies may result in revocation of your borrowing privileges. If a lending library reports that you have lost books or failed to pay fines, your home library may take appropriate action, including suspension of borrowing privileges at your home library and revocation of your TexShare Card.

Ask the staff at your local library for more information. Please note: Despite the name, a TexShare Card does not provide access to TexShare Databases...
