TexShare Cards

TexShare Cards

The TexShare Card Program allows registered users of participating TexShare libraries to borrow materials from other participating libraries across Texas.  Users must request a TexShare card from their home library in order to borrow materials from other libraries.  Each library sets its own eligibility and lending policies.  Contact possible lending libraries to find out about their lending policies.

Using a TexShare Card at The Colony Public Library

The Colony Public Library does not have residency requirements. In lieu of borrowing materials from TCPL with a TexShare card, patrons from other libraries will be issued a The Colony Public Library card with full borrowing privileges upon presenting a valid, government-issued photo ID.
