Program Description

Program Details


Celebrate the opening of the Ames Seed Library on the Library's second floor near the Adult Services desk! 

The Ames Seed Library is a community resource that offers free vegetable, flower, fruit, and herb seeds in order to empower people to grow their own food and build relationships through gardening. 

Drop in to learn about the Ames Seed Library, browse the selection available, and take home seeds. If you have seeds at home that you're not using, please bring them along to donate to the Ames Seed Library!

This is a collaborative project between Ames Public Library, Iowa State University Extension Master Gardener Program, Mustard Seed Community Farm, and Ames Repair Café. Supported by the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation.


Ames Public Library connects you to the world of ideas through diverse and inclusive resources and programs. We welcome proposals via our website for programs at and exhibits at
