Seed Library of Laramie County

Come in and “borrow” seeds, grow them, and return seeds you save from your crop.

We have easy-to-grow seeds that will do well in our climate, so you’ll have success in your garden!

The Seed Library of Laramie County is a joint project of Laramie County Library System and Laramie County Master Gardeners. It is housed at the library in an effort to introduce residents to gardening, and provide education on seed-saving and developing a green thumb.

About the Seed Library:
  • It’s free and you don’t need a library card.

  • Choose from a variety of regionally-appropriate flowers, herbs, and vegetables.
  • Each person may check out 12 packets, up to 2 packets per type of seed. Each packet has enough seeds for a small garden.
  • Plant-specific handouts are available to help you start, grow, and enjoy your harvests.
  • Watch the library calendar for Seed Library programs, such as seed-saving, starting seeds indoors,  using raised beds, eating and preserving the harvest, and more.
