What is a Seed Library?
A collection of donated seeds (vegetable & flower) that are available to both patrons and non-patrons of Harney County Library. You don't need a library card to use the Seed Library, but we'll be happy to make one for you. Seed packets are free – please check out only what you can use!
If you have never gardened before this is your opportunity to give it a try without having to invest a great deal of money. You might only want to grow a few herbs or a row of carrots. A tomato can be raised in a bucket on a back deck. Herbs can be raised on your kitchen window sill. Perhaps you've always wanted to try a certain vegetable but didn't want to purchase a whole seed packet - this is your chance to try something new.
How does the Seed Library work?
The Seed Library operates on an honor system. We have a variety of seeds available. Our seeds tend to be over a year old but you should still get good germination. Please limit your requests to 8 packets or less. :)
I have extra seeds; may I donate them to the library?
We will accept seeds that are in their original packaging, but no hybrids or GMO seeds and no more than 3 years old. We encourage you to donate some seed back at the end of the growing season.
Do I bring the vegetables I grow to the library?
You're also welcome to share any extra healthy plants you have grown, labeled with the exact source and if it is organic/non organic.
How do I arrange curbside pickup?
You can come into the library and browse, or do a curbside pickup! We ask that you please contact us by filling out the form on the seed catalog page or by calling (541-573-6670). We will gather your seeds and give you a call when they're ready to be picked up.
