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

The Salt Lake City Public Library's Marmalade Branch is the anchor of a mixed-use project developed as a key part of the Redevelopment Agency (RDA) of Salt Lake City's master plan for the Marmalade/West Capitol Hill area of the city. The neighborhood serves as a gateway to Salt Lake City from the north, and the Marmalade Branch is both a hub for neighborhood gatherings and an important welcome for visitors, highlighting a focus on development in the area. On-street parking is available on 500 North and 300 West, and UTA routes offer service with stops immediately in front of the Library on 300 West.

The two-story Marmalade Branch, designed by Blalock & Partners Architectural Design Studio and completed in early 2016, provides 18,600 square feet of new construction to support a thriving and growing community. The first floor includes the Moka Cafe, featuring local coffee and chocolate; a Creative Lab with the latest maker technologies like 3D printing and music-making software as well as "old school" tech such as sewing machines and a turntable; a flexible Children's area; and the very popular Music and Movies collection. The second floor includes the Adult collection, study rooms for a range of group sizes, and a large, flexible multi-purpose room with tiered seating to allow for a wide variety of events. The multi-purpose room has already been very popular with the community, hosting community feedback sessions, film screenings, TEDx events, music recitals, and the highly-popular Coffee and Chocolate Society. The second floor also features a wrap-around terrace offering views of the Capitol Building to the east, Salt Lake City's picturesque skyline and landscape to the south and, to the north, views to a public plaza and open green space as part of a new mixed-use development.

The project utilizes an exterior shading device along the west-facing glass to minimize solar heat gain yet still promote a dynamic interaction with the street and passersby. Its compact footprint reduces land use and allows for a high-performance building envelope. The use of LED lights, lighting control systems, occupancy sensors, and daylight harvesting reduce the amount of electrical energy consumption while the flood of natural light creates an inviting interior environment for patrons and an efficient, balanced workplace for staff. In honor of these sustainability features, the Marmalade Branch was awarded the LEED Silver certification from the US Green Building Council (USGBC).
