TexShare Cards & Interlibrary Loans


The library participates in the statewide TexShare library card program. Non-residents may present a TexShare card from their "home" library to obtain a free limited service card from the San Marcos Public Library. Likewise, our patrons who have had a San Marcos Library card for at least two months are eligible to obtain a TexShare card which will allow them to borrow books from other participating public and academic libraries.

Interlibrary Loan

If you need materials which are not available in our library, we will also be happy to borrow them from another library for your use. There is a $5.00 postage fee for this service and patrons must have had their San Marcos Public Library card, in good standing, for at least two months.

Additional Information

For more information about these reciprocal borrowing programs please read our TexShare and Interlibrary Loan Policy (PDF).
