Felton Seed Lending Library

Felton Seed Lending Library!

The Felton Branch now has a Seed Library for anyone to come pick up and donate seeds!


The Seed Library is a green painted recycled dresser located on the right side of the lobby at the Felton Branch.

How it Works:

“Borrow” Seeds: Browse our Seed Library and take as many seeds as you plan to plant. Seeds from the Felton Seed Library are completely free and do not need to be checked out. A library card is not required to take seeds.

Plant seeds: Plant seeds from our library in your garden!

Donate Seeds: Keep our Seed Library going by saving seeds from successful plants in your garden. Drop off cleaned and separated seeds in an envelope or bag with our Felton Seed Library information labels attached. Staff will sort the seeds into labeled envelopes to be added to our collection. The Felton Seed Library also accepts commercially packaged seeds.
