Smithtown Grows

Through September 30
The Smithtown Library is excited to announce the launch of our brand new seed lending program, Smithtown Grows.  Patrons with an adult Smithtown Library card can come into any of our four buildings to get seed packets for their gardens. 
We are excited for you to grow with us!

  • 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.
    • Each patron is allowed to take a maximum of twelve (12) packets between March 17 and September 30.
    • There is a maximum of two (2) packets per seed type per patron. 
    • A valid adult Smithtown Library card is required to participate in this program.
    • Seed packets will be available at the Reference Desks at each of our buildings. 
    • Packets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
