Sometimes the donated item doesn’t meet the Library’s collection development criteria. Perhaps we already have enough copies of the donated title, or enough information of the subject, or it may not meet the information needs of our community. If the Library can’t use the item, it gets passed along to the Teton County Library Friends.
The Friends sort the items and put them into the Friends Book Nook in the library lobby. Friends’ mission is to get as many books as possible into as many hands as possible for as little money as possible.
Donated items not added to the collection or to the Book Nook are passed on to the community.
For more information please email the library or call at 307-733-2164.

The most important role of Teton County Library Friends is to support the Library through volunteerism and advocacy. The main focus of the Teton County Library Foundation is to raise money from donors like you to make possible Library enrichments such as the following:
To checkout a hotspot device, use the following steps:
Anyone who has a valid Teton County Library card can borrow a Hotspot. Apply for a library card to borrow a Hotspot.
You can borrow it for 7 days. Overdue hotspots will have Internet access deactivated until returned.
The hotspots use Verizon or AT & T data and will work within their coverage map within the United States. However, as all Jackson / Alta residents know, the coverage map is more of a suggestion than reality in this area and the hotspot may receive no data in a variety of local locations. If the device says “no data” relocate and try again.
Return to either Library location or book drop, just like other items. If using the book drop please use the Media slot.
You can renew the device by logging into your account or at any Library location, just like any other Library item.
Yes. The hotspot periodically receives software updates from the service provider. You may go ahead and accept the update.
Yes. The Library pushes configuration updates to the devices which causes them to automatically restart.
You’re in an area with no data coverage, relocate and try again or your device is overdue and the data service is suspended on the unit until it is renewed or returned to the library.
The hotspot program is an opt-in service, and that the ISP is not bound to the Library's patron privacy policies. The Library maintains records of which patrons have checked out Library materials for the duration of the checkout period and may use that data to maintain proper operation of the Library in accordance with our Confidentiality of Borrower Records policy (PDF).
We eliminate personally identifiable information from those records as soon as the items are returned and processed. The Library does not collect specific usage data. The Library does not provide patron information to the service provider. The only data that the Library collects is the total amount of data transmitted and received by each device during a billing cycle.
