Planning your garden? Get the seeds you need from our Seed Library!

Our Seed Library is a collection of seeds that cardholders can check out to plant and grow at home. There is no charge and no obligation to return the seeds. IPPL cardholders can check out two seed packets per visit, and each packet contains enough seeds to grow 3-5 plants.

The Seed Library is located at the entrance to the Kids & Teens Department on the second floor, but seeds are available to cardholders of all ages - and gardening skill levels!
