About the Seed Library

The Seed Library offers free access to seeds, gardening resources, and educational programs.


Checking Out Seeds

We offer seeds to anyone who visits our library. A library card is not required and there is no cost to borrow seeds.

  • Borrowing Limits: The limit for borrowing seed packets is three (3) packets per month per household. The Seed Library is based on the honor system. We ask that everyone respect this as a shared community resource.

  • Returns: We do not accept seed donations.

Quality Control

To ensure the integrity and quality of the Seed Library, we do not accept unsolicited donations.

We prioritize clean, mature, organic, or heirloom seeds that are sourced from reputable and known origins. Only these seeds may be used to restock the Seed Library. Seeds of unknown or questionable origin will not be used or distributed.

Our resources can help you learn how to save seeds so that you can have them for the next growing season.


Please contact your local library for the most current seed listings!

Visit your library or catch us at local Farmers' Markets and community events!
