MIAMI-DADE PUBLIC LIBRARY SYSTEM HELPING STUDENTS GET READY FOR BACK‑TO‑SCHOOL!
(MIAMI, AUGUST 2, 2012) – Now that it's time to get ready for a new school year, the Miami-Dade Public Library System wants to be a student's source for information and entertainment! Visit www.mdpls.org and search Databases and More for science project ideas; homework, SAT and other college entrance exams help; and information about important people and moments in history.
Throughout August, special health-related back-to-school programs will be presented where students of all ages will be able to explore culinary instruction with help from FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) which teaches how to make healthy food choices and what makes a healthy snack.
