What is the Seed Library?
The Seed Library is a collection of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds that are available to plant at home.
Our collection changes seasonally. Therefore, different seeds will be available at different times.

How do I check out seeds?
To be able to borrow seeds, a person must have a Riverhead Free Library Card.
Households may request up to five (5) different varieties of seeds twice a month.
Seeds can be requested using the Online Request Form. You will be notified when they are ready for pickup.
The requested seeds may be picked up in-person at the Adult Reference desk.
A patron can stop by the Adult Reference desk to view the seed catalog binder full of currently available
seed varieties. The next step is to fill out a paper request form and give the form to a Reference Department Staff Member.
The seeds will be given to you to take home for planting. The availablitiy of the seeds will change from month to month.
Do I have to return seeds?
No. You do not have to return seeds.
Out of an abundance of caution, we are currently not accepting seeds for sharing.
