If you haven’t used our seed library yet, you now have one more reason.
You can win a gift basket with more than $100 worth of gardening goodies, if you borrow from our seed library between now and May 1.
When you borrow seeds from us, which you can do at any of our branches, ask for a Spring Has Sprung ticket at our Circulation Desk. (Limit one ticket per day.) Drop your completed ticket into the box at the Circulation Desk for your chance to win.
The winning ticket will be drawn on Monday, May 2.
If you don’t already know, here’s how our seed library works:
You can borrow heirloom and organic seeds from us the same way you’d borrow a book or movie.
The library’s collection already has dozens of varieties of seed, including herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruit; and we’re adding more every week.
People can check out as many as 15 types of seed per year.
All we ask is that when the seeds grow into plants, you save some of its seeds and return them to the library.
