TexShare Card Program

Duncanville participates in the TexShare card program. This allows Duncanville residents to go to other libraries for free after getting a TexShare card. Residents of other cities may acquire a TexShare card from their home library and bring it to Duncanville to obtain free limited borrowing privileges. For more information, click here.

Interlibrary Loan

This service allows Duncanville cardholders who live in the city to request items belonging to other libraries and have them mailed to the Duncanville Library for a $3.00 postage fee. Patrons may request items by speaking to a library staff member.

Language Learning Tools

One tool we recommend is Duolingo. It offers free practice in a variety of languages. It is available online, as well as through a smartphone app.

TexShare Databases

Cardholders who live in Duncanville may access the TexShare databases from home with their library card number and the library’s super-secret password. We’re not allowed to post it here, so please come in.
