Seed Library at MSU Libraries

The MSU Library Seed Library is a publicly accessible place to pick-up some seeds for vegetable, herb and flower growing. Due to the Library's closing in response to COVID-19, the seeds were given to the Lansing Food Bank for distribution.

What is a seed library?

A seed library is a service that allows members of a community to “borrow” seeds for planting at no cost. Seed libraries provide benefits beyond making seed packets easily and affordably available to patrons.

MSU Library's Seed Library

MSU Library's seed library is a distribution library where students, staff, faculty and community members can have access to interesting varieties of vegetables, herbs and flowers that can tolerate Mid-Michigan's weather and growing conditions. We don't expect seeds to be returned after the growing season.

Seed Library location and access

The MSU Library's seed library is located on the second floor of the west wing. It is stationed near the micorforms area on the east side of the Hollander MakerSpace. It is accessible when the library is open to the public. For specific hours, see Main Library Hours.
