OUR SEED EXCHANGE IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR FURTHER UPDATES.
Library members can "check out" packets of seeds at the Main Library in Franklin. It’s a fun way to try new seeds and it’s free! Just pick out your seeds, plant them, harvest seeds in the fall, and then bring a few back to the Library for the next growing season.
We’re still accepting donations, so if you have any extra seeds, please consider donating them to us for our 2020 Seed Exchange! Just follow the guidelines (PDF), and drop them off at the Reference Desk on the second floor.
Getting your seeds is easy!
The Library's seed collection will be kept at the Reception Desk on the 2nd floor.
Each seed packet will include very basic information about the plant and planting instructions. For more details about each plant, patrons are encouraged to use some of the Library's great gardening resources. A Reference librarian will be happy to help you locate just the right gardening book.
