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 labe. Make sure that seeds are in a well-sealed bag, box, or envelope.

About the branch

Considered to be one of the finest Carnegie Libraries in the West, this 8,900 square foot library has two levels. Since its opening in 1918, it has been an important part of city services to Westside residents. The Chapman Branch was completely renovated, including an updated HVAC, following the collapse of the roof during 1993. A major remodel of the basement level meeting space in 2002 resulted in a much improved children's area and expanded service and collection space for adults on the ground level. A small meeting room is available for public use, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library. Street parking is available to the south of the building, and an external book drop is located on the east side of the building for returning library materials after hours.
