We are excited to launch the Barrie Seed Library at both branches for the season! Visit either library location to 'borrow' seeds and get your garden growing. The Barrie Seed Library is located in the grey cabinet by the printer and main desk Downtown, and in the colourful pots in the RBC Living Room at the Painswick Branch. 

Borrowing Seeds
Patrons can 'borrow' up to 3 packets of seeds to plant and grow your own garden. Once you make your selection, please record the type of seed and how many packages you will be taking on the sign-out sheet in the binder. 

Returning Seeds
All we ask is that when you harvest your plants, you save some seeds to 'return' back to the seed library. We also gladly welcome donations of new seeds! This allows the whole community to continue benefiting. If you donate seeds, please label your envelope with the seed type, the date the seed was harvested or purchased, and your contact information. 

Thanks to our community partners who helped get this great initiative off the ground.
