What is a seed library?

  • Like a collection of books, Seed Libraries help to spread seed and food literacy.
  • Packets of seeds are made available to anyone who would like to plant them.
  • Seed Libraries encourage the return (or donation) of seeds so that the seed collection can continue to grow.

How can I borrow seeds?

  • Search our Catalogue to view available seeds
  • Seeds cannot be placed on hold. 
  • Visit our Seed Library located in our Georgetown or Acton branches and browse the collection.
  • Take your chosen seeds to plant.
  • Seeds are not checked out onto your library card; this is a fine free collection. 

How can I give back?

  • Share your produce with friends and family.
  • Harvest seeds from the plants you have grown from the Seed Library.
  • Save seeds and donate them back to the Seed Library at any time of year. We accept all types of seeds.
  • Drop off seeds in their original envelope to a Halton Hills Public Library in either Georgetown or Acton.
