Library of Things: Seed Library

A guide to the non-traditional items available for checking out at the Milton Public Library

Seed packets are now available. We are currently accepting seed donations. 

Note  - our Seed Library is open to all library users. You do not need a library card nor are required to be a Milton resident to participate.

The Seed Library was started as part of the Milton Grows initiative (2022-2023) at the MPL. Thank you to the Friends of the Milton Public Library for their generosity in continuing to support our Seed Library.

Seed Library

A Seed Library is a collection of seeds that community members may "check out," take home and plant in their gardens. Seed packets (up to 5 packets per patron, please) are available during the spring and early summer for sign-out near the second floor Reference Desk. We are currently accepting seed donations.

We'd love pictures of your bounty grown from MPL seeds. Send to:


The Seed Library is supported by the generosity of the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
