A Closure on the Great Book Blockade of 2009

Thanks to Rayvi Sunico for leading me to this link on DEPARTMENT ORDER NO. 57-2011
09 December 2011 at the Department of Finance website. It will greatly be of help to me as a school librarian ordering and acquiring imported books off shore. There's a downloadable PDF on the Florence Agreement which mentions that books bought by libraries are exempt from tax duties. But, of course.

As a government protocol, registration is the next step for libraries who wish to be exempt from tax duties.

My question is: Is it worth going through all the trouble of registration so that libraries can save from book purchases abroad?

Yes it is worth the trouble of registration since you will be satisfied as a librarian seeing new books in your libraries. The number of those going to libraries will definitely increase as new materials are available to them. I just hope that there is no red-tape involve in that registration process.

epoxy lining - no doubt about the points you raised on the increase of readership in the library but, yes, the red tape can dampen the spirit.
