I was lucky, I got a card from Alachua before they adopted a geographic restriction and I've got more than two years to go before I'll be verified. It's a pretty good library, so depending on where you are, it might be worth a road trip. Once you get the card, it'll be good for three years.
Hmmm, well I'd have to find an add'l reason for going as I'm a good 5 hours from there, unfortunately, but that is great to know. Thank you very much for the info.
