Another option (which we use) is to include one or more of the following in your receipt template: %INCLUDE(header_text)%, %INCLUDE(notice_text)%, %INCLUDE(footer_text)%, %INCLUDE(alert_text)%
Then for each library, set the header_text, notice_text, footer_text and alert_text settings in the library settings editor as needed.
We have those "includes" in our default template on the server, that way one template works for 98% of the libraries.
