Free public libraries and free museums continue to be exempt under Revenue and Taxation Code section 202(b). Where, however, a library is not a public library and/or a library or museum charges admission, the exemption may be applicable if all the requirements of section 214 (i.e., articles of incorporation, irrevocable dedication, tax letter, financial documents, etc.) are met.
