Did You Know: You can check out SEEDS at your Library? 

Any time during Library hours 

For all ages | Calling all gardeners! Did you know you can “borrow” seeds from the Library for your spring planting? This is a great time to start your plants indoors. We have an assortment of flower and vegetable seeds in our Honey Mae Crowell Memorial Seed Library – free for patrons to “borrow.” Stop by anytime during Library hours to browse the collection, take some seeds home, and get growing!
