Seed Library

The Seed Library is a collection of non-invasive, non-GMO food and flower seeds that you can take to plant at home. The collection includes organic, heirloom, and pollinator-friendly seeds. Seeds are generally available in The Commons at the Main Library. Please take only what you plan to use and register your selections.

During COVID-19, seeds are available at curbside pickup by appointment at the Main Library and the Ellettsville Branch Library. Feel free to take a bundle during your appointment time. If you have received seeds, you can register your packets. Though requests for specific seed types cannot be fulfilled at this time, you can be assured of a vibrant selection.
