Lawrence Public Library’s Seed Library provides seeds and offers gardening resources for our community. In addition to providing complimentary vegetable, herb, and flower seeds, we offer a variety of free programs and events on topics related to green spaces and green living. Whether you are brand new to gardening or have the greenest of green thumbs, we are here to help you get growing!
How Does the Seed Library Work?
1. Come to the library.
2. Throughout the spring season, choose up to 5 seed packets from our seed catalog. For 2020, the seed library will be available from February 15th-April 30th.
3. Take your seeds home and watch them grow!
Thanks to the generosity of the Kansas Health Foundation, Cottin’s Hardware, Lawrence Feed and Farm Supply, Inc., Prairie Acres Garden Club, Earl May, the Kaw Valley Native Plant Coalition, Seed Savers Exchange, a LiveWell Douglas County Grant, and a Wal-Mart Community Grant, we are able to offer a wide variety of free seeds to the community.
(Also, Cottin’s Hardware will offer a 10% discount on seeds and seed starting materials to Lawrence Public Library card holders from February 20-May 31, 2020. Show them your card, and ask for the Library Garden Discount!)
