The Seed Library is located at | Main. It is available during open hours and is available for patrons of all ages!

There is no cost to borrow seeds. There is a limit of five (5) seed packets per month per household. You are not required to return any saved seeds to the Library, but may if you wish!

We may accept donated seeds but prefer clean, open-pollinated, or heirloom seeds.
