Seed Library

Beginning this Spring, The Plymouth District Library will have a collection of seeds, free for you to take and grow at home!

How does it work? Come into the Library any time during the growing season (April – August), and check-out the seeds you want. Don’t worry — you don’t need to return them. All we ask is that you check them out at the Reference Desk in order for us to keep track of statistics. We want to know what types and varieties are popular so we can keep more of those in stock.

Hand holding seeds over dirt

Whether you’re growing a single tomato plant, or you want to have an entire backyard garden, here are some reasons to grow your own food.

SAVE MONEY
By growing your own food, you are saving money on gas and produce that would have been spent traveling to the grocery store.

MORE NUTRITIOUS
Food in its freshest form is not only the tastiest way to enjoy it, but also the most nutritional.

TASTES BETTER
What tastes better than food that was just picked seconds ago from your own backyard?

GET SOME EXERCISE 
Gardening is a fun way to get outside for some fresh air and sunshine.

SENSE OF PRIDE
The process of successfully planting a seed, watching it grow, then harvesting and consuming it is a satisfying and rewarding feeling.

AESTHETICALLY PLEASING
Not only do gardens provide an abundance of fresh produce, but they also add beauty to your space.
