Do you buy books to resell?

Yes. We are looking for good-condition contemporary titles. Recent and classic cookbooks, graphic novels, manga, and fiction, science fiction, or fantasy published within the past 3 years are of particular interest.

We do not purchase hardcover fiction. At this time, we are not purchasing mass market (small format) paperbacks except for classics and science fiction/fantasy. Purchases are at our discretion based on our inventory needs and condition of the products. Generally, we offer $1 per book in cash or $2 per book in store credit ($.50 cash or $1 store credit for small format paperbacks). We require a government-issued photo ID for sales. We do not purchase books marked "Greenfield Public Library."

If you have a large quantity of books for purchase, please message us beforehand at fedstreetbooks@gmail.com or via Facebook or Instagram to verify availability and to ensure we can assist you.

Do you take book donations/can I drop books off at your store?

We are happy to take donations of books that meet our resale guidelines (above). Unfortunately, we don't have the capacity to process large quantities of donated books. (Please don't leave books outside the store. They will become damaged or will be viewed as litter/blocking the sidewalk.) Roundabout Books has a 24-hour drop box for book donations, or you may contact the Greenfield Public Library for their policy.

What is your returns policy?

We will credit in-store returns made within 3 days with receipt via original method of purchase (cash, card, store credit). With no receipt, or after 3 days, return requests will be treated as buyback for resale (see above), at our discretion. $1 sale books are not eligible for return - final sale only.

What is your privacy policy?

We do not sell your personal information to anyone.
