TexShare provides a statewide card program through which current St. Mary's students, faculty, and staff may check out materials, in person, from participating TexShare libraries.
To get a free TexShare card, complete the online application linked below. Once your application has been received and a card has been generated, you will receive an email directing you to pick up the TexShare card at the Blume Library Circulation Counter. With a TexShare card, you may directly borrow books, music, movies and more from any other participating TexShare library, just as if you were a card-holder there. TexShare cards are valid for one semester only. You will need to get a new card each semester. You must present a current TexShare card, your St. Mary's Rattler ID card, and a photo ID (if your St. Mary's ID does not include a photo) at the library from which you wish to borrow materials.
Borrowers from other institutions can pay TexShare fines, assessed by the Blume Library, with a credit card using our online payment form.
