Seed library

Seed Library

Beginning April 4th

Starting April 4th, the Waynesboro Public Library will be launching our first-ever Seed Library. In this exciting new program, local community growers can get and give seeds for their gardens! Take up to five packets a week per household. When the garden is in bloom and you have extra seeds, drop them off at our circulation desk and we’ll package them and put them out into the seed library. We need your seeds, too!

Seed Library FAQ

How many seed packets can I take?

 At this time, we suggest no more than 5 seed packets per household, per week.

Why are there so few seeds in my seed envelope?

Depending on the availability of the seeds, there will be fewer seeds per bag, to be able to go to more households.

I have old seeds leftover from last year’s growing season. Will you take them?

Yes, just label what they are (cantaloupe, tomato seeds, etc.), in a bag and give them to someone at the circulation desk, and we’ll get them out to other growers! This is how we make sure this continues to grow!

Do I need a library card to get seeds?

No, but it can be helpful to check out books to learn how to grow a garden!

Hats and Lap Blankets for the Augusta Health Cancer Center

Hats and lap blankets for the Cancer Center

Calling all knitters! Starting the week after Thanksgiving, we're collecting hats and lap blankets for the Cancer Center at Augusta Health. Stop by the front desk to pick up a bag with specific instructions for your hat or blanket. When your project is finished, put it in the bag to keep it clean and drop it back at the front desk.

For all projects, experts recommend cotton or bamboo yarn (wool can be scratchy on sensitive skin). Hats can use any snug-fitting pattern, and shouldn't be more than 8" from center to edge. Adult sizes are preferred, as the CDC doesn't recommend homemade or donated hats for young children during chemotherapy. Lap blankets are generally 36"x52", but any size is appreciated.
