All About TexShare


TexShare Card Program

What is the TexShare Card Program? 

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

How do you use your TexShare Card somewhere other than Olney Community Library?

  • Each library sets its own lending policies for visiting TexShare Card users. Many libraries restrict the type or number of materials that a visiting TexShare Card user may borrow. Others impose a minimum age requirement. Libraries may not permit TexShare Card holders to download ebooks or eAudiobooks. Fines for late returns or lost materials apply to TexShare Card borrowers.

  • The first time you visit a library to use your TexShare Card, be sure to bring a photo ID and your TexShare Card. You’ll be asked to complete a registration form in order to activate your borrowing privileges at that library.

What are the responsiblities of the TexShare Card user?

  • You have responsibilities as a TexShare Card holder. The reverse sign of the Card has an agreement you must sign and follow.

    You should become familiar with the policies and restrictions of any lending library you use, 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,

How do you get a TexShare Card?

  • If you’re a registered patron of Olney Community Library, you may request a TexShare Card from us. You must be a patron in good standing and have clear return history.
