Tax Receipts and Appraisals

A charitable tax receipt will be issued for all donations of materials for the collection that are acceptable (as noted above), are added to the library’s collections and exceed the value of $50. The tax receipt will be issued for the fair market value at the date of receipt of the materials. Older materials, which may have a higher intrinsic value, must be accompanied by a valuation in writing (at the donor’s expense) by a recognized authority, such as an antiquarian book dealer.
