Obtain a TexShare Card

The TexShare card allows our students, faculty, and staff to have direct access to books and other library materials that aren't available at the Mary and John Gray Library.

To be eligible for the TexShare Card Program, you must:

  • Be a user in good standing at the Mary and John Gray Library.
  • Present valid identification along with the TexShare card in order to borrow materials from participating TexShare libraries.
  • Agree to return materials to the library from which they were borrowed.
  • Return materials in person or by other methods outlined in the library's lending policy.
  • Be responsible for any charges for late, damaged, or lost materials.  

Lending policies are made by the individual libraries that participate in the TexShare Card Program. Because of this, lending policies may vary from library to library. Be sure to check the lending policies for the library you wish to use.

To take advantage of the TexShare Card Program, follow these simple steps:

  • Register for and receive a TexShare card from the Circulation desk at the Mary and John Gray Library.
  • Consult the TexShare web site to see the list of libraries that participate and the specific lending policies of the library you wish to visit.
  • Present your TexShare card at the reciprocating library's circulation desk to activate your checkout privileges. You will be required to show a photo ID.
  • Check out the books or other materials at the circulation desk. It is your responsibility to take care of your borrowed materials and return them on time.
