Teton County Library Director
Jackson, Wyoming

Job Description


The Director will be committed to maintaining and improving the existing high level of customer service, community engagement and program services as well as integrating the Library’s vision, goals and staff development needs with its operations strategy to ensure the Library remains a vibrant community center.

The Director must exercise a high degree of judgment and discretion along with political and business acumen.

Teton County Library served more than 600,000 in-person and virtual visitors last year. Over 360,000 items were checked out to over 16,000 active card holders.

The library boasts a staff of skilled librarians and para-professionals; core, popular, and special collections; a range of robust and growing digital resources; and a host of dynamic, community-focused programs. The library functions as a key community center, a place to dream and to do.

The main library, in Jackson, is 35,000 square feet and includes public meeting spaces, study rooms, and two audiotriums with state-of-the-art technology. The library also has a 2,500 square foot branch in Alta, Wyoming, accessed across the Idaho state boarder. The annual operating budget is $3.9 million. Full and part-time staff total 35 FTE’s.


Description of Community


Teton County (population 23,125) 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 – National Park, National Elk Refuge and National Forest.

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.

As a resort community with a tourism-based economy, living in Teton County costs about 52% more than in the rest of the state with much of the higher cost coming from housing. In addition, this means county departments, like the library, serve an economically diverse demographic, from second homeowners to low-wage service employees.

 Other Required/Preferred Skills & Experience

 To be considered, candidates must have:

  • Master’s Degree in Library Science
  • Six years’ executive experience in institutional library leadership
  • Four of which includes supervisory and program management experience
  • Two years’ experience working with organizational boards preferred
