Teton County is a year-round resort community, located in the northwestern corner of Wyoming. It serves as a southern gateway to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and is home to three world class ski resorts. Approximately 97% of the land within the county’s borders is held in public ownership – Grand Teton National Park, The National Elk Refuge, and several National Forests.
As a community, Teton County is characterized by its commitment to outdoor adventure, education, and philanthropy, demonstrated by abundant arts, recreational and cultural offerings for residents and visitors alike. In the summers, we host more than three million visitors from around the world. Despite this influx, Jackson Hole proudly maintains its western heritage and hospitality.
With its tourism-based economy, Teton County Library serves an economically and culturally diverse population that includes small business owners, low-wage service employees, second homeowners, a significant Latino population and a seasonal workforce.
Teton County Library system includes two branches. Located in Jackson, the Main Branch was expanded in 2013 to 34,000 square feet, earning LEED Gold certification. The Alta Branch moved to its new building in 2009.
Teton County Library has a strong financial base. The annual budget is developed by the library director and staff, approved by the Library Board, and submitted to the Board of County Commissioners for funding through a property tax assessment. Additionally, the Teton County Library Foundation and Friends of Teton County Library are non-profit organizations that raise funds and foster volunteerism in support of Library programs and services.
