What is a seed library?

  • Like a collection of books, Seed Libraries help to spread seed and food literacy.
  • Packets of seeds are made available to anyone who would like to plant them.
  • Seed Libraries encourage the return (or donation) of seeds so that the seed collection can continue to grow.

How can I borrow seeds?

  • Search for seeds using our catalogue.
  • Visit our Seed Library located in our Georgetown or Acton branches or come out to the Georgetown Farmers' Market every Saturday from June to October to browse our seeds cabinets.
  • Take the desired seeds to one of our staff members, and they will check them out for you with your Halton Hills Public Library card.
  • There are no fines and the seeds will expire off your library card record at the end of the season. 

How can I give back?

  • Donations are welcome at any time of year and we accept all types of seeds.
  • We recommend harvesting seeds from the plants you have grown from the Seed Library.
  • Drop off seeds in their original envelope to a Halton Hills Public Library in either Georgetown or Acton.
