There are several options!

1. TexShare

Currently-enrolled students and currently-employed faculty and staff can get a TexShare card, valid for one semester, from the Circulation Desk. You can take your TexShare card and a photo ID to another TexShare Library and receive borrowing privileges at that library. Patrons are responsible for returning items borrowed from other libraries to that library.

See the link below for more information and a map of the 500+ participating TexShare libraries.

2. Your local public library

You might also consider getting a library card for your local public library. Public libraries offer a wide variety of materials, events, and services and are a great benefit to the community.

3. Interlibrary Loan

If you are a member of the TAMU-CC community, you can also get books from other libraries using our Interlibrary Loan service (see link below).
