Sutton Seed Lending Library
It's that time of year again! Our Seed Lending Library is open for the 2016 garden season. Stop by to browse our seed catalog and gardening books as you plan your home garden. And if you have any saved and/or unused seeds from last summer, please consider donating them to our seed library.

Seed Lending Library
 
 
The Sutton Seed Lending Library is located in the Sutton Library. We have free open-pollinated, heirloom seeds available to patrons. Select some seeds, plant them in your garden, and try your hand at seed saving in the fall. By returning some of those seeds to the library, you are helping to continue heirloom varieties and sharing with your community.
