The Seed Library is a collection of packaged seeds that are free to take home and plant in your own garden. Our Seed Library includes a variety of vegetables, greens, flowers, and herbs. Patrons may browse our Seed Library and select up to five packets, with a limit of one per seed variety. The Seed Library is kept in the Adult Service area. Seeds do not need to be returned, though you are welcome to return seeds that are harvested in the fall to help contribute back to the Seed Library.
Browse the list below to learn what seeds will be available this season. Growing instructions for each variety will be available on a print handout and on this webpage when the Seed Library launches.
Use these tables to know when to plant and harvest your seeds and the number of days to maturity for each variety offered in the Seed Library.
The One Seed, One State variety this year is a Grand Rapids Lettuce seed. These are available separate from our Seed Library and can be signed up for at the Information Desk. Visit the MI Seed Library Network for more information.
