The TexShare Card allows patrons to borrow materials from over 500 library collections all across Texas. The card is accepted in a wide variety of public and academic libraries, allowing borrowers in good standing access to hundreds of books and other materials that would previously have been unobtainable. A patron's library card, in combination with the TexShare Card, is a ticket to a powerful network of library resources in Texas.
