How Do I Get a TexShare Card?


On Campus
Stop by the Ask A Library desk at Sueltenfuss Library. An OLLU Librarian or staff member must sign the card to activate it.

Houston and Rio Grande Vally Campuses

Where Can I Use My TexShare Card?

You can use your TexShare Card at any Participating TexShare Library.


How Do I Use My TexShare Card?

Present your OLLU TexShare Card and a valid photo ID (OLLU ID, Texas Driver’s License, etc) at a participating TexShare library to check out materials. Return all materials on or before the due date to the library you borrowed them from, not to OLLU. You will be responsible for any late, damaged, or lost materials. You must agree to surrender your TexShare Card to TexShare library staff if requested.


Lending policies may vary from library to library. Check the Lending Policy of a participating TexShare library before you borrow.


When Will My TexShare Card Expire?

The expiration date will be written on your TexShare Card. When your TexShare Card expires, you must apply for a new card.


  • OLLU Student TexShare Cards: Expire at the end of each school term
  • OLLU Faculty and Staff TexShare Cards: Expire August 31st of each year
