It’s hard to believe that we’re already halfway through the growing season! Here at the Library, we’re already thinking ahead to what seeds we’d like to offer in the Seed Library beginning in February of 2024. Over the next month, we’ll start ordering seeds from our vendors, gathering from plants growing in our Teaching Garden and Prairie, and accepting surplus flower and veggie seed donations from our customers. Before we do, we’d like to hear from you. What would you like to grow next year? Any new varieties, or things you had trouble finding this year? Let us know using this form. 

If you find that you have leftover seeds as you harvest this fall, we’d love to include those in the Seed Library. While we can use any seed donation, we’re especially looking for tomato and pepper seeds this year-they are our most requested seeds, and are also the most expensive (by far!) for us to purchase. Just put your surplus seeds in an envelope labeled with the variety and your contact information, and leave it with the staff at the Customer Service desk at the front of the Library.
