Seed Library

Let’s Grow Together!

The Seed Library is a collection of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds (vegetables, herbs and flowers) that any resident of Hamilton County with a library card can borrow to plant at home. The Seed Library is a partnership between the Master Gardeners of Hamilton County, Friends of the Hamilton East Public Library and the Hamilton East Public Library.

Seeds are available to check out starting March 4, 2024. Library cardholders can check out up to 20 packs per year. 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 the Public Service desk at your preferred location: 317-579-0307 (Fishers) or 317-770-3215 (Noblesville). You can also find more information about planting through the Master Gardeners Website. Subscribe to the Seed Library email newsletter here!

Show us your seeds on social media by tagging us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @HamiltonEastPL. Be sure to use #HEPLSeedLibrary and #HEPLGrowers to follow along. You can also tune into our YouTube channel for some gardening tips and tricks!
