Volunteering

Volunteer Opportunities

We are accepting applications for teens needing credits for school. We have no other projects available for 18+ individuals. As soon as opportunities become available, we will adjust this to reflect the need.

We accept volunteers ages 14 and up. To learn more about volunteer openings for adults at the Library, please email the library at puylib@puyallupwa.gov or call 253-841-5454.

Please be advised that we have limited opportunities for volunteers to work with us. After submitting your application we will contact you to let you know if there are any available openings within 14 business days. All correspondence will be done via e-mail by default.

Applications

If you wish to apply and you are 18 years or older, please fill out a volunteer application form available at the library's main desk or download an application and mail it to the Library. For teens ages 14 - 17, please download and complete the Teen Volunteer Application and return it to the Library. 

Adults over the age of 17 will be required to complete a Washington State Patrol background check which will require a signature and a copy of your current identification. Once we have received your application, we will contact you as soon as it has been processed.

Please be aware that the Library cannot fulfill court-ordered community service hours. 

Teen Volunteers

Teens can volunteer to help on a regular basis at the library, as space allows. These volunteers will learn some basic procedures and tasks associated with the library's day-to-day operations. We accept volunteers from ages 14 and up.

For teens ages 14 - 17, please download and complete the Teen Volunteer Application (PDF) and return it to the Library. If you wish to apply and you are 18 years or older, please fill out an Adult Volunteer Application. Adults will be asked to complete a Washington State Patrol background check, which will require a signature and a copy of their current identification. Both forms are also available at the main desk on the first floor.
