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.
