What is a Seed Library?
In simple terms, a Seed Library is just how it sounds-it loans seeds to gardeners.
A Seed Library works much like a traditional library.   The benefits of a seed lending library are many: it is a way to have fun, build community with fellow gardeners and support people who are new to the world of gardening. 
 
How Does it Work?
  • Each patron is allowed a maximum of two (2) packets per seed type
  • There is a maximum of one Seed Bundle per patron.
  • A valid adult Smithtown Library card is required to participate in this program.
  • Seed packets will be availabel at Reference Desk at each of our buildings.
  • Packets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
