Our Mission

The mission of the Gravette Public Library is to provide quality resources, services and lifelong learning opportunities through digital and printed media, activities, and programs to meet the educational, informational, and recreational needs of its community.

History

The Gravette Public Library was established in 1976 and originally occupied a room in the Gravette Civic Center.  It relocated in 1987 to the former Gravette School District lunchroom on Charlotte Street.  The library moved to its current location at 119 Main Street SE in February of 2016. 
 
The Gravette Public Library offers e-books as well as books in print, audiobooks, and DVDs.  Computers are available to the public and WiFi is accessible inside the library and within an approximate 20' radius outside the library.  The library hosts community events including Moon Over Main Street and an Open House before the annual Christmas parade.  A variety of literacy, STEM and digital skills programs are offered for youth and adults.

The Gravette Public Library is a department of the City of Gravette and supported by the Gravette Public Library Advisory Board.  Programs are made possible through donations, grants and the generous support of the Friends of the Gravette Public Library. 
We appreciate our volunteers, past and present.  Local civic organizations, Gravette High School students and staff, and other individuals who donate their time have supported the library through the years and continue to make a difference.  Thank you!
