Seed Library

What is a Seed Library?

A Seed Library is a free community resource for all things related to gardening and horticulture. All of our seeds are available to the community, all we ask is you try to save seeds at the end of the year to return to us. Our Seed Library promotes the growth of heirloom crops and eco-friendly Wisconsin native plants.

Stop by the Adult Reference Desk to pick up featured seeds.
Contact Gabriel at (414) 321-9595 ext. 4101 or for more information.
