Seed Library

Seed Library

The library now hosts a seed library right inside our building, where visitors can take up to 3 packets of seeds at a time to plant in their personal gardens, free of charge. Just come inside the library, and go to the seed library in the first card catalog under the bulletin boards to find the vegetable, herb, fruit or flower seeds you need.

The seed library is offered in grateful partnership with the New Providence Sustainability Committee, and runs on donations of seeds for use within the community. If anyone has leftover unused seeds, please label them and drop them off at the library.

Our SEED LIBRARY has been a huge hit so far!
We have given out over 100 packets of seeds to members of our community since we launched our seed library in March! Now that many of you are finished planting, we'd love to accept your surplus seeds. Please drop off seeds either in their original seed envelope, or labeled in a bag of what types of seeds they are.
 
We have high need for donations of:
  • Tomato seeds (all varieties)
  • Vegetable seeds (any kinds)
  • Squash seeds (zucchini & yellow squash, especially)
  • Pepper seeds (habanero, if you have them!)
  • Herb seeds (basil, chives, and dill, especially)
  • Fruit seeds (any variety)
  • Flower seeds (any except zinnia)

Thank you!

Come inside and connect!

Welcome to your NEW New Providence Memorial Library!

If you haven't visited us lately, be sure to come in and experience all that has changed. Our new layout has something for everyone. Browse our new displays, choose your favorite spot to cozy up and read, or sit down to work. Explore our expanded catalog now that we're part of the MAIN Library Alliance. You can request materials in our online catalog from any member library to be delivered here for you to pickup, if we don't have what you need in house. 

We are thrilled to be FINE FREE in an effort to encourage you to come back and keep borrowing. Your library card is your key to all free subscriptions, online resources, and digital materials, too. So get your library card and make a note of your barcode number!

Come discover, collaborate and connect with Your Library this winter and all year long. Visit our Calendar for our program schedule. Join us!

We look forward to seeing you here,
