Seed Library

Seed Library

The Seed Library is open for the season! 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.

 

Browse and Take Seeds

You can find the Seed Library in the Main Library's Library of Things space, next to the DVD collection. Drop by during open Library hours to browse and take seeds. A library card is not required and there's no need to check out! Please take only what you plan to use. Seed Library pickup by reservation is no longer available; however, special accommodations can be made in specific circumstances. Please email seedlibrary [at] mcpl.info for more information.
