Thanks again to my library card, I will be visiting the Exploratorium in discoverandgoSan Francisco next week.  Make no mistake:  I made the reservation last November, and that was after months of checking almost daily the library’s Discover & Go site, where passes to the Exploratorium are snapped up almost as soon as dates are opened.  My lucky day came and I immediately made my reservation.  Now I won’t be able to make another reservation to the Exploratorium until next year, not able to even check available dates.  I understand on February 1 passes were released for April and all have been taken.  Anyway, the moral here is to keep on trying and to be ready and flexible with the date of your trip to any popular Discover and Go venue.  Just keep trying; free passes to Discover & Go venues are well worth the time and effort a qualified library card holder spends to get them.

At Fremont Main, those seeking a 15-minute consultation with a lawyer need to register in person at the Information Desk between 5 and 5:45 p.m. on the day of the program.
