Pick up flower, herb, and veggie seeds from Mentor Public Library’s seed library.

Update: Our Main and Headlands Branches will reopen with limited hours and additional safety measures on Monday, June 8. Click here for details. 

Starting Monday, May 18, you can pick up books, movies, music and other items from the drive-thru at our Main Branch or curbside at our Lake and Headlands Branches.

But there’s another thing you can pick up too: seeds.

You can get free herb, vegetable, and flower seeds for your yard and windowsill gardens from us.

Here’s how our seed library works. Anyone with a CLEVNET card in good standing can check out seeds from us for their own garden. Our collection already has dozens of varieties of seed. You can check out as many as 15 types of seed per year.

Then, you can plant the seeds. Later, after the plants have grown, you can save some of your seeds and return them to us, if they wish.

When calling us to place holds, you can tell us that you also want seeds, and we’ll let you know what varieties are available.
