Do you have a TexShare Card?

If you don’t, you might consider applying for one. It’s easy and free!

The TexShare card program is a reciprocal borrowing program across the state of Texas. Participating institutions include many public, academic, and special libraries.

As a current Tarleton student, faculty, or staff member you are eligible each semester to receive a TexShare card. The card allows you to visit any participating TexShare library and borrow materials free of charge. You can request your TexShare card at the Dick Smith Library Circulation Desk or online:

Once you have received your card, you are ready to check out. Remember to bring your TexShare card and photo ID when visiting libraries.

Materials borrowed on a TexShare card are subject to the lending library's policies and must be returned in person or by first-class mail.

TexShare provides a list of participating libraries on their web site. Use the Library of Texas to search for books and articles from libraries located in Texas. The Library of Texas lets you pick the library collections you search, helping you locate items near you.
