Can I Check Out the Car?

Found on BoingBoing this morning:

Someone in Portland has a homemade fake car registration sticker. I guess they needed a barcode to make it look even somewhat legit. So, they stole it from a library item! Here’s the original post with picture:

The bar code is: 3 1220 00777 6211

The public library I used to work at started patron numbers with a 2 and item numbers with a 3. Anybody from Portland know how their system works?
