Seed Library

The Seed Library provides free seeds to residents to promote lifelong learning and encourage stewardship of natural resources. The Seed Library is located at Main Library and is available during open hours 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.

Please share your gardening success when using seeds from the Seed Library! Add #dplseeds and tag @davenportlibrary wherever you post!
