Teton County Library’s mission is to foster literacy and lifelong learning, inspire creativity, and strengthen community. We view Teton County as a welcoming community inspired to pursue its passions; a place to forge connections, discover new ideas, and engage in civic life. Since 1938, we have grown from a single reading room in downtown Jackson to become a world-class, county-wide library system serving as Jackson Hole’s center for information, knowledge, and entertainment.
The Library is one of the most popular and valued services in Teton County. Library staff members are highly regarded by the public for their knowledge, quality of service, and caring. We work every day to foster and support a diverse, vibrant community and a strong, healthy democracy. We do this work guided by the principles of intellectual freedom, literacy and the love of learning, privacy and confidentiality, respect for community, strong partnerships and collaboration, and innovation.
The Library embraces IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility) principles by working to eliminate barriers to access, providing staff and the public with opportunities for growth, and developing equitable access to the programs and services we offer the community. If you share these values and meet the qualifications, the Library invites you to apply for this position.
