Jenny Emery Davidson

Executive Director

Jenny Emery Davidson brings experience in education, journalism, and the American West to her post at The Community Library. She holds a doctorate degree in American Studies from the University of Utah, where she focused on the literature and history of the American West. Before graduate school, she completed a bachelor’s degree in English at Carleton College and worked at the regional news publication High Country News. She grew up in Twin Falls, Idaho, and her Idaho education is grounded in summers working on a Bureau of Land Management wildland fire crew and backpacking trips with her husband – as well as in the writings of Mary Hallock Foote and Wallace Stegner. Prior to her post at The Community Library, Jenny worked as an administrator and English instructor at the College of Southern Idaho, and she taught literature at the Universidad de Guanajuato as part of a Fulbright fellowship in Mexico in 2010. Some of her favorite books include My Antonia by Willa Cather, Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and the poems of Emily Dickinson.
