“Dig Into Reading” by Lending Seeds at Your Library

seedsAre you planning to “Dig into Reading” for this year’s Summer Reading Program? Have you considered starting a seed lending library? You already lend books about gardening, why not provide your patrons with a little more help getting started?

A seed lending library allows patrons to borrow seeds and return the seeds from their harvest to the library.

YALSA has an in-depth post about getting your teen patrons involved in starting a seed lending program at your library.  It walks you through the process, including suggesting ideas for community partnerships.

The Richmond Grows Seed Lending Library has lots of helpful resources on how to save seeds.

For more information, The Center for a New American Dream has a free recorded webinar you can watch to help you get started.
