Tabletop Games Circulation Policy

The Griffin Free Public library offers a collection of tabletop games both for use in the library and for circulation outside of the building. Far from the simple games of years past, today’s tabletop games promote deep strategic thinking, creative problem solving, and empathy. Tabletop games are a fun and rewarding way for friends and families to enjoy time together.

  • Games may be checked out by Griffin Free Public Library card holders with library accounts in good standing.
  • Games circulate for one week.
  • A patron may check out one game at a time.
  • Holds and renewals are permitted.
  • Games cannot be requested by other libraries through interlibrary loan.
  • Games must be returned directly to a Griffin Free Public Library Staff member at the desk during regular library hours. They cannot be returned via a different library or through the book drop.
  • A fine will be assigned to the most recent borrower for any missing pieces.

Library staff strongly recommends that borrowers inspect the game they are checking out before leaving the library so that they may immediately report any problems with it. Upon checkout, the borrower assumes full responsibility for the board game and all components. All returned board games must be assessed for condition and components by library staff or library volunteers.

The board game is not considered returned until all items within the box/case have been returned to the library in working and complete condition. A lost, damaged or stolen game will result in a full replacement charge of the game. Failure to return or damage to any part of each game will result in a charge of the individual items whenever possible.

If the board game is not returned 7 days after its due date, it will be considered lost and the borrower will then be charged the full cost of replacing the item.

NOTE: This is a loan program ONLY. The library staff is not available for instruction. Detailed instructions are provided in the game box.
