SAN ANTONIO (August 14, 2020) – The San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) is excited to help area students navigate going back to school during these uncertain and constantly-changing times. With many schools incorporating or shifting to increasing online participation in coursework, the need for Wi-Fi is more pressing than any other year. Additionally, while students are learning to complete coursework from home, the need for expert help is becoming more necessary. With access to Homework Help in English and Spanish, practice tests, free public Wi-Fi, FAFSA help, and more, SAPL wants to let students know that we’re ready to help!
