It’s my hometown, but I don’t live in Philadelphia anymore. Why didn’t I get a card from the one that’s in my city and only 5 minutes away from me? For the same reason I haven’t had a library card in a decade or so: I couldn’t order the card online and would have to leave the house and be amongst people.
Enclosed with my card was a brochure listing the branch locations that I’ll probably never visit. When I was younger, having the card made you eligible for an admissions discount at the Baltimore Aquarium. I wonder if that’s still the case. Now to finish setting up my Overdrive account.
