Mrs. Doles, Librarian

I’m Andrea Doles, one of your Ben Steele librarians. This is my 5th year at Ben Steele. Before working at BSMS, I was a librarian at Will James for 19 years. I’m an alum of Montana State University Bozeman (Go Bobcats!) where I received my BA in English with a K-12 Library Media certification. In 2013, I finished the Technology Integration Master’s from Lesley University. When not working in the library, I enjoy doing family research, embroidery, reading, and spending time with my family and cats.


Mrs. Grewell, librarian

Hello, I am Denise J Grewell, the other Ben Steele librarian. This is my 1st year at Ben Steele, but I have been a librarian for 37 years. My family and I raise cattle (and horses and chickens and pigs) on our ranch halfway to Red Lodge. I am blessed with three children and five grandchildren. In my spare time, I love to read, ride horses, and attend sporting events.
