Bring seeds from your garden or personal collection to share with your neighbors, or pick up free seeds provided by the Library! This event will happen at all City Library locations.

You are welcome to check out seeds from our Seed Library year-round. On Saturday, October 15 we will have a special systemwide event to bring the community together to celebrate seeds, gardens, and home agriculture. We'll teach seed saving skills, and accept donations of seeds from your own garden! (see below for details on seed donations.)

Grab a Library "Passport" and get stamped at any three City Library locations on Saturday, October 15, and you'll be entered into a random drawing to win a fruit tree or a berry bush. 

East Side Libraries (Main, Anderson-Foothill, Sprague, Sweet) · 10am–1pm

West Side Libraries (Chapman, Day-Riverside, Glendale, Marmalade) · 2–5pm

Checking Out Seeds:

When you check out seeds from the Seed Library, you'll become a member of the program and recieve a quarterly newsletter with upcoming events and gardening resources. You are encouraged to take as many seeds as you want. Please take only as many seeds as you will actually grow and share. We cannot guarantee that your seeds will germinate and flourish, but we are happy to offer networks of resources and support for you in your gardening endeavors. 

Returning Seeds:

We must protect the seeds and agriculture that our lives depend on, keeping a stable foundation for future generations. We ask all donors to promise that they are returning viable seeds that are labeled correctly. Please do not donate seeds that are more than 5 years old. Label your seeds clearly with name, variety, and year harvested. If you would like to be credited with donating seeds, add your name to the label. Make sure that seeds are in a well-sealed bag, box, or envelope.

About the branch

The Sprague Branch's high-gabled English Tudor style building has served the Sugar House community for three generations. The building was selected by the American Library Association in 1935 as the "Most Beautiful Branch Library in America." The two-level facility was opened in 1928 and has been renovated several times as use continues to increase. An expansion project to add a new public meeting room and remodel the building was completed in April 2001, which increased the square footage to 13,058. As the Sugar House shopping district sprouted up, the Sprague Branch continues to hold its historical charm and provide community members with outstanding public library services. Free parking is available to the east and south of the building, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library.
