Hugh B. Bain Middle School Library : Search the Library Catalog / Place an InterLibrary Loan Request

How can I get a class set of books?

It is often possible to get class sets of books through Inter-library loan.  If you would like to get a class set of books, please check with me to see if there are enough copies of the title available throughout the RICAT system.  If enough copies are available, please give me a copy of your class list, and I will request a book for every student.  Please plan in advance, as it usually takes about two weeks for all of the books to arrive.  

Search the Bain Library Catalog

You can search the Bain Library catalog on by using the search box below.  You can also use RICAT to place holds and interlibrary loan requests on over 1,000,000 books and AV materials in schools across RI. Interlibrary loan materials are delivered directly to Bain at no cost to you.  Please see me or email me at to get a username and password for RICAT.
