Seed Library at the Greenville Public Library

We’ve Started a Seed Library!

 How Does It Work?

  • The Seed Library is housed in an old library card catalog.
  • Patrons may visit the library and select up to 5 packets of seeds per visit.
  • Seeds are arranged in alphabetical order.
  • Check out your seeds at the Circulation Desk.
  • Grow your plants and enjoy the harvest.
  • Save seeds from your harvest and consider returning some to the Seed Library at the end of the growing season.

Do you have any seeds you want to share?

  • We’re accepting donations of seeds for flowers, vegetables and herbs that are less than 3 yrs. old.
  • Loose seeds should be donated in a sealed plastic bag or envelope.
  • To donate, please fill out the Seed Donation Form available at the Circulation Desk in the Library. Provide information such as name of plant, color & variety, annual or perennial & harvest year.

Our Seed Library is About …

  • Encouraging our community to dig in and garden.
