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

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2022 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.
