RILINK Consortium

The Bain Library is a member of the RILINK (RI Library Information Network for Kids) consortium.  As RILINK members, we are able to participate in Inter-library loan with nearly 150 other schools thoughout RI. This means that Bain students have access to over one million items, and are able to request books and other items. These items are then delivered to the Bain Library free of charge! Students can request items through the Bain page at (click here to watch a short video with instructions on how to do that) and should see Mrs. Grabbert if they have any questions.

Library Mission Statement

The mission of the library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.  This mission is accomplished by:

  • Providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats
  • Providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
  • Working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students
