The Cranston Public School Libraries are partnering with the Cranston Public Library to get library cards into the hands of as many students as possible. Some students already have library cards but can't use them because the cards are lost, expired, or limited by overdue fines. Usually, it requires a trip to the library to take care of these problems, but the Fresh Start initiative will allow students and their families to simply fill out a form and submit it to their school librarian to get what they need.
