The Friends of the Puyallup Public Library is a separate 501(c)3 organization that serves to enhance and expand the resources of the Library. The Friends raise funds through memberships and the ongoing sale of books in the Friends of the Library Store.
This revenue helps to sponsor special events for children and teens in the Library, including the Summer Reading Program. The Friends of the Library also host educational and cultural programs for all ages throughout the year.
Membership fees are a key revenue component in generating dollars to meet our budget commitments. With the New Year comes our appeal to you to renew your annual membership and to encourage friends and neighbors to show their support of the Friends of the Puyallup Public Library.
You can print the Membership Form (PDF) or you may pick up one next time you visit our Library. Your membership fee is tax deductible as the Friends of the Puyallup Library is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization, tax id# 91-1108282.
The Friends of the Library meet on the second Thursday of the month at 10:30 am, in the library meeting rooms.
