Comsewogue Public Library’s Seed Library
Help yourself to seeds and plant them at home! We’ve divided larger seed packets into smaller ones and labeled them with basic care instructions.
We have a variety of herb, flower, and vegetable seeds available in Spring and Summer (while supplies last). Specific seed selections vary based on the time of year and what we have available through donations or purchase.
There is no “borrowing” or “returning” of seeds to the Library. Please be mindful that this is a shared community resource; only take what you expect to use. We encourage everyone to take no more than 3 packets of seeds per month.
