HCPL Joins MetroShare Library Consortium

Launch date: August 23, 2021

We are pleased to announce that the Haltom City Public Library is now a member of MetroShare Libraries, a new north Texas library consortium. The MetroShare libraries include: Burleson Public Library, Benbrook Public Library, Forest Hill Public Library, Haltom City Public Library, Keller Public Library, Richland Hills Public Library and Watauga Public Library.

The MetroShare consortium has launched a new online catalog that will provide a more user-friendly experience and an improved integration of digital titles

Fequently Asked Questions
Can I still use Fort Worth libraries?
Yes! Haltom City residents can still utilize Fort Worth libraries with a TexShare card. A TexShare card is issued to Haltom City residents who possess a library card in good standing. Please contact the library at 817-222-7786 for more information.
Does this mean that there will be fewer items for me to choose from?
While there will be less total items in the catalog, Fort Worth items checked out by Haltom City cardholders was only a small percentage of the total circulation for the past 2 years. Additionally, we offer an interlibrary loan service connecting us to libraries nationwide. If you want an item not owned by a MetroShare library, we can request it for you and have it sent to us at no charge.
Why are you making these changes?
This new consortium gives the MetroShare Libraries the ability to choose their own library software and transition to a catalog that provides more customization and a better user experience. It will also provide opportunities for collaboration in other areas, such as programming, collection development and grant seeking. Finally, this new partnership provides a framework to recruit other area libraries to join MetroShare in the future and grow our community of libraries.
