Seed Library

The purpose of the Davenport Public Library Seed Library is to serve as a resource for the community, to promote lifelong learning, and to encourage good stewardship of natural resources

The Seed Library is housed at Davenport Public Library | Main (321 Main Street). It is available during all of the Library's open hours and is available for patrons of all ages!

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

We 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 us @davenportlibrary wherever you post!
