Let's Get Growing...Our New Seed Library is Open!

Crystal Lake Public Library’s new Seed Library opened to the public July 1.

Stop by Adult Services, browse our collection of vegetable and flower seeds, and select the seeds you want to grow. Guests are limited to 10 packets per visit and can choose no more than two of each variety. Plant your seeds and enjoy! Then harvest your seeds and return them to share at our Seed Library (if you choose to).

Special thank you to the Crystal Lake Library Foundation for funding the Seed Library.
