When life hands you the wrong seminar, get a library card.

I had every intention of providing a thorough write-up on what I learned from a financial seminar I was to attend this evening; however, there was a mix-up with the events. Tonight’s seminar was on social security and medicare, not the savings and investment topics that initially caught my attention. Though these topics are important, by the time I reach the applicable age (whatever age that may be in the future), it’s likely that the laws and the programs themselves will have changed significantly, making Millennials like myself question whether we’ll even have access to those benefits – but I digress.

Consequently, I decided to tackle another project on my list: resolve my library card’s status – err, or lack thereof. And now that I have restored my MoCo library membership and gotten a bit of redemption as a self-proclaimed bookworm, I have also discovered some awesome services provided by MCPL:

  1. Free access to Lynda.com
  2.  Books for $1.00 thanks to the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County, MD

Not only do I have a lovely new library card with all the incredible online educational tools, I’m the proud owner of 3 new books for the low, low price of $3.00 – all proof that when life hands you the wrong seminar, get a library card.
