TexShare is a state program that allows member libraries to give circulation privileges to other member library patrons.
When the materials are not available at the LRC students who have a TexShare card have direct, personal access to those library materials of participating TexShare libraries, with privileges to borrow library materials from participating TexShare libraries.
The TexShare card for will have an expiration date at the end of the current semester.
You must apply for a TexShare card at the Circulation Desk of the LRC during business hours if you are either a:
TSTC Harlingen employee;
Our TexShare cards will only be issued to TSTC Harlingen Library individuals who have never had any lost materials or have never had any fines in the previous semester.
TexShare cardholders may consult the TexShare website for a listing of libraries which participate in the Card Program and the specific lending policies of the library you wish to visit.
When you present your TexShare card at the participating library's circulation desk to activate your checkout privileges with them, you may be required to show a photo I.D.
All materials need to be returned to the lending library by their due dates or all materials must be returned to the lending library no later than the date indicated on the TexShare card, whichever comes first.
Any charges for late or lost materials will be the responsibility of the TexShare cardholder. Abuse of the loan privileges, such as refusal to pay for late or lost materials, will result in the loss of TexShare privileges and in the refusal of TSTC Harlingen Library to renew the TexShare card.
