Borrowing library materials:
With a TexShare Card, a library patron may directly borrow books from more than 500 participating libraries in the state of Texas. If your local library participates in the TexShare Card program, you can request a TexShare Card from it. For example, students at WT could request a TexShare card from the Cornette Library Research & Access desk.
The first time you visit the Cornette Library to use your TexShare Card, be sure to bring a photo ID, your library card from your home library, and your TexShare Card. You will be asked to complete a registration form in order to activate your free borrowing privileges.
Please remember to return any books from the Cornette Library directly back to the Cornette Library, not your local library.
