Varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers will be available throughout the spring and summer at our Seed Library. Library users are able to “check out” seed packets with their library card, and they will be yours to keep, plant and enjoy!
Prescott Farmers Market Executive Director Kathleen Yetman collaborated with librarians Ruthie Hewitt and Martha Baden to continue supplying library users and garden lovers with seeds.
Seeds were chosen with care and are open-pollinated varieties that will do well in the region and can be started in spring inside and outside. Seeds were aquired from reputable growers, our local Schaffer Farms and skilled gardener Molly Beverly.
The Seed Library is located on the second floor of the library in a card catalog of yore. Patrons can also find a collection of gardening books there. The library plans to host programs with gardening experts who can share their expertise and encourage novice gardeners. Stay tuned!
The Seed Library is part of our Library of Things collection, which includes hiking backpacks, culture passes, Wi-Fi hotspots, Chromebooks and iPad minis.
Packets, promotional materials and books are funded through the Friends of the Prescott Public Library and library funds.
