Seed Library

About the Seed Library

The Conant Public Library Seed Library is a collection of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds that you can choose from to plant and grow at home. Our seed collection includes veggies, herbs, and flowers. Simply come into the library and browse our seed card catalog. Then, come to the circulation desk to check out seeds. No need to return anything! If you happen to have extra seeds, share with a neighbor or a friend. We ask that you only take what you can use (limit of 10 seed packets per family). Our seed library is about encouraging our community to experience the joys of gardening! It’s a fun, rewarding, and nutritious activity for the whole family. If you have any questions, please reach out to the library at 978-422-6409.

This program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Conant Public Library.
