New “Seed Libraries” at Local Libraries

I was very excited the other day to discover the Bethlehem library in Delmar (part of the Upper Hudson Library System) now has a “seed library!” Seed libraries are popping up at libraries around the country and they offer patrons the chance to take home seeds for their garden for free.

The seeds library had vegetable, herb and flower seeds in packets. You may select any 6 you would like for free. The vegetable seeds were mostly organic and each had planting instructions.


Other Capital Region libraries, including Nassau and Voorheesville, also have seed libraries.

Here are the packets I picked up for my garden this year:
