Recording Your Donations for Tax Purposes
Use this form to itemize your contribution of used books and media to the Jefferson County Library Foundation. Items donated may be deductible for income tax purposes at their present “fair market value” as provided by law. The IRS tax code places the responsibility for estimating the fair market value on you, the donor.
Large volume donations (1 box of books or more)
You can make large volume donations of books and media directly at the Jefferson County Library Foundation warehouse Monday-Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, where you’ll find grateful staff and helpful volunteers ready to assist you with unloading. As a courtesy, we request that all donations be brought in boxes. Please call in advance if you have more than six boxes of books, as we will need to confirm whether we have the space to accept your donation.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a pick up service for large donations. If you need assistance in getting your books to us, we recommend College Hunks Moving & Hauling, an organization offering professional residential and commercial moving, junk removal, and donation pickup and delivery services.
