Your generosity helps our community thrive.

Communities thrive when individuals have access to resources, people, and learning that allow them to become their best selves.


Our Mission

To secure and steward resources to support the Teton County Library...your essential place to thrive in a changing world.

Our Model

Through a highly effective public-private partnership, the Teton County Library and Library Foundation are able to provide a return on investment to the community of $4.00 in value for every $1.00 invested here.

Public dollars fund the cost of running library facilities, paying staff salaries, and providing a core collection of library materials. Through private donations small and large, the Foundation funds virtually everything else, including on- and off-site educational programs and events for all ages; expanded library collections; critical staff access to enhanced technology; key collaborations about community issues; and outreach to targeted populations such as youth, teens, seniors, and Latinos. The Foundation also supports continuing education for library staff, online database subscriptions, a volunteer income tax assistance program, and a library employee housing assistance fund.

A library is a focal point, a sacred place to a community; and its sacredness is its accessibility, its publicness. It’s everybody’s place….

Ursula K. Le Guin

Public libraries have been a mainstay of my life…without [them], I would be a pauper, intellectually and spiritually.

James A. Michener


Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.
