In April 2013, the Eden Valley Area Library launched a new community service: a seed library. That’s right, seeds. As in flower or vegetable seeds. How can a person borrow and then return seeds, you ask?
The basic idea is this: you check out a packet of seeds, plant them, and let some of them go to maturity. You then harvest that next generation of seeds, and return them to the library so other people can check them out.
At the Eden Valley Area Library, community members can find drawers of seeds alongside books and DVDs. Community members may borrow these seeds for free.
Borrowers can check out seeds without a library card, and they also have easy access to books and other gardening resources from our library.
Stop in get your seeds during our open hours through May.
