Replacement of Lost or Damaged Items

Greenfield Public Library Items

The library will accept cash, checks, or money orders at the circulation desk for items that have been damaged, destroyed, or lost. Patrons may choose to use a credit or debit card to pay for items by accessing their library account online.Please contact the main circulation desk with any questions about replacement costs of GPL items.

GPL will accept replacement copies of books in lieu of payment if the book matches the format of the lost or damaged item and is in the same or newer condition. Music CDs or DVDs may be replaced with new copies of the exact item. We reserve the right to accept or decline an exchange based on the item’s condition.

Once an item has been paid for, GPL is unable to provide refunds.
