Planning your garden? Get the seeds you need from our Seed Library!
Our Seed Library is a collection of seeds that cardholders can check out to plant and grow at home. There is no charge and no obligation to return the seeds. IPPL cardholders can check out two seed packets per visit, and each packet contains enough seeds to grow 3-5 plants.
The Seed Library is located at the entrance to the Kids & Teens Department on the second floor, but seeds are available to cardholders of all ages – and gardening skill levels!
This Saturday, April 18, we will open a new library at IPPL- our Seed Library! IPPL members will be able to borrow seeds from our Seed Library to grow at home. The Seed Library will be located in the Kids & Teens department, but seeds will be available to patrons of all ages. The Indian Prairie Seed Library is sponsored by Pick. at Garden Patch Farms.
