Start your garden this winter


If you have a window in your kitchen, it’s not too soon to begin gardening this year.

You can grow herbs and even some vegetables on your windowsill and move them outside if and when you’d like.

And we’ve already bought seed for you. We’ve loaded our Seed Library with basil, thyme, rosemary, sage, and many more herbs. You can even get catnip seed!

Looking for some vegetables? Start a “salad garden” with leaf lettuce, radishes, and arugula. We’ve also added calendula, which is pretty to look at, and makes a great tea.

The possibilities are endless. With your library card, you can “check out” up to ten seed packets a month. (Don’t worry, there’s no return date!)

Stop by any one of our branches to check out your seed and start growing today.
