Puyallup Public Library Foundation

The Puyallup Public Library Foundation, Inc., is a tax-exempt, private, nonprofit corporation that provides supplementary financial support for the Library. Because the demands for library services and the needs and opportunities facing the library are growing much faster than the public funds available to support them, the goal of the Foundation is to enrich, not replace, traditional tax-based support through private fund-raising from individuals, businesses and foundations. Such supplemental funding will make a difference between an adequate city library, and a fabulous one!

Your support to the Puyallup Public Library makes the difference between a good library and a great library. Your donation to the Foundation can improve our collection, provide special author and arts events, and support services that we could not pay for out of city funds. Consider giving a gift or memorial to the library by filling out a Memorial Donation Form (pdf) and mailing a check to the Library. If interested in a memorial, you can also buy an engraved brick (pdf) or a memorial tile (pdf).

Recent projects completed by the Puyallup Library Foundation include the funding for our Quick Pick carts, which houses contemporary titles on the first floor, as well as funding the creation of a more fanciful children's space with an improved play area,  children's art, furniture and a computer in the children's area of the library.

The Foundation supports:
  • Expanded hours
  • Cultural and literacy programs for all ages
  • Technological advancements
  • Special projects
We can be reached by mail at Puyallup Public Library Foundation, 324 S. Meridian, Puyallup WA 98371.  Contact Tim Wadham, Library Director, for more information on how to give to the Library Foundation. He may be reached by phone at 253.841.5452 or by email: twadham@ci.puyallup.wa.us.

No furniture so charming as books.
