When I was at the public library in Montgomery Co yesterday– I decided to add to my collection of library cards.
You will note– I have a Library of Congress, Prince George’s, Anne Arundel, Baltimore Co. Computer Pass and the latest Montgomery Co. Getting the card took a little longer than I planned and I was on a meter. I also had to use the ladies room– so after I got the card– I rushed to the lounge and then Starbucks to buy the Post and get change for a dollar. I did not use the card before I left the library– and a moment ago when I tried to access my account it came back invalid.
The lesson learned…. make sure the card works before you leave the library– however in my case- when I finally got back to the parking meter it was flashing 0:00. The ladies room and change to feed the meter were show stoppers and I am glad I left when I did.
It is easy to get library cards for Maryland counties [make sure you check them before leaving– if you have the time]. You need to have a valid Maryland’s Driver’s license to get library cards for most jurisdictions. I do not have one for Howard Co. I think all I needed was a photo ID for the Library of Congress card.
The photo on the right– what I had on for the walking tour I planned. It was hot a muggy in our area yesterday. Photo taken after I arrived home, ate and put my hair up. I look really messy… Those shorts– purchased from United Benetton in the Crystal City Underground — many years ago. They come to the knee– and are really big on me now…
By the way– I wanted to keep this post about software tools I have sold to clients on the front burner for a day or so. I have not sold any of my tools and if you believe you have purchased a QiSoftware/Hosting-Q tool or service— you should contact the FBI immediately.
