SEED LIBRARY

Purpose

The seed library is free to Hamilton County residents. It will be available during regular branch hours from late March through October. Seeds are provided for check out (as well as classes and resources about growing and saving seeds).

Patrons may check out up to 5 packets per visit to a total of 20 packets per season, and plant them in their home garden. At the end of the growing season, you are asked to save your seeds to return to the library, or use them for your own garden next season.

 

History of Committee

The first seed library in Hamilton County opened in 2017.  There are now seed libraries available at Carmel Clay Public Library, and at Fishers and Noblesville branches of Hamilton East Public Libraries.  As of the 2021 growing season, there is also a NEW Little Free Seed Library box at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds that will feature a combination of seeds saved and donated by Master Gardeners, and donations by various seed companies.
