Upper Elementary Library

Hello! My name is Brittany Gripe and this is my 3rd year to be the Library Media Specialist at GUE. This is my 10th year as an educator and my 7th year in the Gravette district. I am a graduate of Northeastern State University. I am married to my husband, Cody, who is a firefighter. 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 sophomore at the University of Arkansas. In her spare time, she loves to read and work on her cattle farm. 


The library is open Monday-Thursday from 7:30-3:00 and Friday from 7:30-2:30.
