The impressive building that housed the Huff Memorial Library, also known as the Teton County Library, in Jackson, Wyoming is a single story log building constructed between 1938 and 1940. The significance of this building rests in its association with the growth of the community in ways that reach beyond traditional conceptions of education, or even beyond economics and culture, ways that reflect community needs and participation and commitment. Many institutions such as libraries are public in name, but this one derived from the people throughout the community, including people from its most renowned leaders to its humblest citizens who shared in common their value of the written word.
