The Hugh B. Bain Library serves as its primary clientele Bain school students, staff, teachers, service providers, family and community, without regard for age, gender, religious or ethnic background, political affiliation, educational ability or economic status. During operating hours, the library is staffed by a professional librarian who holds a master’s degree in library and information science from a graduate school accredited by the American Library Association. Resources are chosen to support the Cranston Public School curriculum and to engage and excite students grades 6-8. Resources include books, periodicals, DVD’s, digital books and online databases. As a member of the RILINK Consortium, the Bain Library further extends full access to its materials and services at no charge to the RILINK Consortium schools. The facility is available for use by the school community. The Library has a full-time flexible schedule Monday - Friday. Curriculum integration and collaboration are the lifeblood of the library.
