Where do I park?

If you’re arriving by bike, we have a bike rack right in front of our store.
Do you sell your books online?
Yes, and we are adding more books every day! You can buy online directly from us here, or via Amazon (rare titles only).
How do I know if a book is used or new on your website?
We have a limited selection of new titles, and they will always have a price point ending in a "9" ($19.99, $15.49, etc.). We also try to mark them as new titles in their product descriptions. Our used books' prices end in "0" or "5" ($5.00, $3.75) and are generally less than our new titles. Our NEW value books have prices ending in .97 -- these are never-owned books that may be marked with a slash or dot at the top or bottom of the book's spine.
Do you sell audiobooks?
Do you sell books on consignment?
We sell books from local authors (Greenfield and parts of Franklin County) on consignment. We also support local musicians and artists when possible. Contact us for more information.
Do you host author events?
Events remain suspended in light of COVID-19 guidelines.
Do you buy books to resell/accept trade-ins?
BOOK DONATIONS, TRADE-INS, AND RESALES FOR CASH OR CREDIT ARE SUSPENDED AT THIS TIME. Updates will be posted here and on our social media.
Do you take book donations/can I drop books off at your store?
BOOK DONATIONS ARE SUSPENDED AT THIS TIME. (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 donate to the various Little Free Library stations around town!
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 trade-in/buyback for resale (see above), at our discretion. $1 sale books are not eligible for return - final sale only.
I have store credit -- can I use it?
Yes! Purchased gift cards are equivalent to cash and can be used for in-store and online purchases of all titles. Store credit from trade-ins (noted on our business cards with the date of credit issued) can be used for in-store purchases of used books and DVDs. Trade-in store credit cannot be used to purchase new (not used) titles. Contact us with any questions.
We do not sell your personal information to anyone.
