Your bike likely has linear pull brakes so you will need to a. loosen the pinch bolt that holds the brake cable to the noodle (down at the wheel). You then pinch the brake in towards the rim with your hand until it's almost touching and then retighten the cable. You can then do some fine adjustment on how close the brake pads are the rim with the adjusting nuts up at the levers.

Perhaps some adjustment is necessary or there is so much friction in the cable housing or brake bosses that the spring tensiion of the brakes can't overcome it.
Search engine of your choice "adjust brakes on bicycle" or "service bicycle brake cables".

There is a small tension nut on the cable near the brake calipers on the cable coming from the brake. Loosen that nut and squeeze or loosen the brakes to where you want them and then retighten the nut on the cable.
