If you are a San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) patron who wants a free, TexShare card issued by SAPL, then you must be one of the following:

  • A Bexar County resident.
  • An individual that owns a business or property in Bexar County.
  • A City of San Antonio Employee.
  • An active SAPL patron in good standing (no payment plans).

Getting your TexShare card in person:

If already a San Antonio Public Library card holder:

  • Stop by any San Antonio Public Library Location. 
  • Let a staff member know you are interested in obtaining a TexShare card 
  • Provide your San Antonio Public Library card and photo ID and proof of current address – like your driver’s license. 
  • There is no separate application necessary, only a need to re-verify your information on your San Antonio Public Library card

If you live outside of Bexar County:


  • Out-of-county patrons can get a TexShare card from their library and will then be eligible for a free, limited SAPL account (restricted to a 5 item checkout). TexShare Card patrons must be present to obtain a SAPL card.
