Puyallup Public Library no longer accepts Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests. However, to accommodate requests for materials not available at the library, patrons may submit a purchase request to add an item permanently to the collection. You may submit a request through email, by phone at 253.841.5454 or by visiting one of the service desks at the library. You must have a valid library card to submit a request. Submissions are reviewed by a librarian for cost and relevance to the collection. If your request is approved, you will be notified when the item is ready to be checked out.
