The Seed Library

What is the Seed Library?

The Seed Library is coming soon! It will be located in a card catalog cabinet near the newspapers. The drawers will be sorted into "Fruit & Veg," "Herbs," and "Florals," and filled with donated seeds. Any member of the community can borrow seeds from the Seed Library without a card or membership required. Taking seeds from the seed library only promises that if you can, you will donate some of the seeds you save.

The Seed Library is sponsored by the Warren County Master Gardeners, with seeds donated from Fedco Seeds, High Mowing Seeds, Seed Savers Exchange, and local gardeners like you.

Donating Seeds

Until the Seed Library is ready for use, donations can be brought to the circulation desk. You will be given an envelope to fill out as much information as you can for the seeds being donated. Please ensure the seeds are fully dry and clear of chaff before donating. If donating seeds in a commercial packet, there is no need to fill out a new envelope.
