Seed Libraries at Select Chicago Public Library Branches

Do you have leftover seeds from your garden last year? Do you need new seeds for the growing season? Visit one of CPL's many seed libraries at various locations across the system!

A seed library is a lending library that holds garden seeds instead of books. It is an easy, low-commitment way to try out gardening. Drop in anytime during library hours to visit the seed library. You can also check out books about gardening and growing plants in the Chicago region.

Please note: some seed libraries are only available seasonally. Please contact the branch directly to confirm seed library availability.
