School Tools

School Tools are teaching materials and interesting objects for learning and play. Visit the catalog to see which toolkits are available now (opens in new tab) or come browse the display in the Children's Room of the Central Library!  

You must come to the Children's Room of the Central Library to check out a School Tool, or you can call 401-943-9080 x4 with your library card number ready to reserve a toolkit and have it sent to any Cranston Public Library location for pick-up. School Tools cannot be picked up at libraries outside of Cranston.

Schools Tools can be checked out for 3 weeks and must be returned to a Cranston Public Library location. If the toolkit you want is checked out, please call 401-943-9080 x4 for more information. 

Please fill out this form to request books to go with any of the toolkits.
