Seed Library

The Seed Library is a collection of vegetable, herb, and flower seeds that any resident of Vernon Township with a library card can borrow to plant at home. The collection is currently closed until Spring 2024.

Library cardholders can check out up to 15 packs per season. We don’t expect you to return the seeds, but if you have extra seeds or collect the seeds from the plants you grow, we will gladly take them back into the Seed Library.

Have questions about the Seed Library? Please contact us at info@vtpl.lib.in.us or call us at 317.485.6402. You can also find more information about planting through the Hancock County Master Gardeners Website.

Ways to Support the Seed Library

Donate your own seeds!

Heirloom and non-GMO seeds that have been harvested from the previous season may be donated to the Seed Library. To donate, bring in your seeds in any container, be that a glass jar or paper envelope, but we prefer containers smaller than 4 ounces. Leave your name, the name of the seeds, and when you harvested the seeds at the front desk with your donation.
