A sprouting Seed Library

Posted on October 14, 2022

While print materials remain the most borrowed items in The Indianapolis Public Library system, the Seed Library, available each year from late March through September, shows promise for its popularity. This year more than 25,000 seeds packets were circulated. Those home gardeners may have harvested many of their own tomatoes, corn or even flowers!

The Library provides seeds for check-out as well as education and resources about growing and saving seeds and organic gardening. The Seed Library is open and free to the public at 16 branches and through outreach at events and via the bookmobile. There is a 25 seed packet limit. Available seeds vary by branch.

The Library Foundation is grateful for Ascension St. Vincent and all our generous donors who make the Seed Library a valuable community asset for patrons.
