The Seed Library

This Spring, get growing with our new Seed Library! Take (or donate) seeds for vegetables and other plants and start a garden of your own. Find the Seed Library on the first floor of the Main Library.

Emma, The City Library's Community Garden Coordinator, and Giles Larsen, of Wasatch Community Gardens, will unveil the seed library and answer questions to guide you through the process of collecting and saving seeds. Seasoned seed savers or those with extra seeds are invited to donate their seeds to the Library. 

This project is in partnership with Wasatch Community Gardens.

About the library

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2020 for repairs and renovations.

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The structure embraces a public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium.

A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
