Public schools in our area start in mid August.
Back to school means school supplies and new clothes. In Florida we are fortunate to have a tax holiday on school supplies from August 4 to August 13.
Another back to school supply is a library card...for adults and children. With it you have access to over 130,000 items, online databases for research...just a world of information.
All you need is an ID that has your current address. Parents need to register for children. Children aged kindergarten and up are eligible for their own card... a nice way to send new students off to school.
