Want To Plant A Vegetable Garden? The Library Now Has A Seed Library To Help You Get Started!

With the TCCL Seed Library, you can borrow seeds from a large variety of vegetables (and a few fruits and flowers as well) to take home and plant in your garden. Since, hopefully, the seeds will become plants, we don't expect you to bring those exact same seeds back. However, once the plant produces, you simply take a small portion of the vegetables, fruits, or flower, harvest the seeds and dry them, then return those to the library for other people to use.

You can learn more about this exciting new service on our TCCL Seed Library reference guide, found on our Research and Learn page, or by doing a title search for TCCL Seed Library in our catalog. This guide includes basic info on using the seed collection, lists of some of the available seeds ranked by ease/difficulty of collecting useable seeds, and links to gardening books and other resources.

The TCCL Seed Library is currently housed at four Tulsa library branches: GlenpoolNathan HaleSuburban Acres, and Zarrow.

Library staff also will be promoting the Seed Library at the Cherry Street Farmers' Market on its opening day, Saturday, April 1st, 7-11am.
