Ready to garden? BPL has free seeds for you!  Visit the reference desk in Central Library's Society, Sciences & Technology Division and choose up to three packets from a variety of flower, herb, fruit and vegetable seeds. Please have your library card available.

** UPDATE **  Thanks for your participation!! We have run out of seeds for 2019.  Please check back sometime in March 2020 for new seeds.

****  UPDATE ****  Unfortunately due to our closure on March 15, 2020 to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we are unable to distribute seeds this year.  We are very sorry and hope to return in 2021.
