Whether someone is heading back to school after years in the workforce, or parents and teens are investigating post-secondary education options, this program will answer a lot of questions,” states Zach Berger, Cranston Public Library. “Libraries are all about lifelong learning, so this collaboration is a natural fit.”

The next two sessions on March 2 and 30 will explore additional topics like career choices and financial aid. Further details about the next two sessions in the Prep for Success series will become available soon.
