The time is right for autumn gardening and the Phoenix Public Library’s Seed Library is here to help you. The Seed Library is free with your Phoenix Public Library card.

“Check out” up to three seed packets at a time (limit three per 3-week period) at the Acacia Library, 750 E. Townley Ave., using your library card. “Customers can check out over 35 non-GMO/organic vegetable and herb seeds to begin or add to their gardens,” says Marta Morici-Caufield, assistant librarian at the Acacia Library. “We also have lots of information for the new gardener and offer classes in gardening.”

Since these seeds will be planted in your garden, there is no due date or overdue fees. The seed packets will be automatically removed from your account after the 3-week checkout period.

The Acacia Library is open 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

The Seed Library @ Phoenix Public Library is supported with partnerships from: Native Seeds/SEARCH and the City of Phoenix Public Works & Water Services Departments, with additional support from the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
