~For the Traveler: CPL takes part in TexShare, which is basically a travelling library card for participating libraries. You will need to visit your local library and get a card, if you are in good standing (ie: no late fees, books overdue/lost etc) They can issue you a TexShare card- when you get here, we will have you fill out a little application and issue you a temporary card so that you may check out books here. *More information can be found in our Texshare Tab.
