Hello! My name is Brittany Gripe and I am excited to be the new Library Media Specialist at GUE. This is my 8th year as an educator and my 5th year in the Gravette district. Before moving to GUE, I taught sixth grade math at GMS. I am a graduate of Northeastern State University. My husband, Cody, and I have been married since March.  In my spare time, I love to read, watch the Razorbacks, and spend time with my family and friends. 


Mrs. Newbill is our morning library aide. She and her husband, Preston, have one son named Nick who is a GHS senior. In her spare time, she loves to read and work on her cattle farm. 


The library is open Monday-Thursday from 7:30-3:30 and Friday from 7:30-2:30.
