IndyPL’s Glendale Branch Opens Seed Library with Workshop and Resource Fair
Indy residents now have more to check out from The Indianapolis Public Library (IndyPL) than just their extensive collection of books and DVDs. The Glendale Branch is also offering the urban homesteader the opportunity to borrow seeds.
Free and open to the public, the seed library offers many types, including produce seeds with organic and heirloom options, and perennial native plant seeds. Patrons may check out up to five packets per visit and a total of 15 packets per season. Also available for checkout are educational resources on growing food, saving seeds and organic gardening.
In addition, IndyPL invites gardeners of all skill levels and ages to learn more about many gardening topics during a free series presented by Purdue Extension Master Gardeners and made possible by Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.
The first workshop in the series, Indoor Seed Starting, takes place at 10:30 a.m. on March 12. Participants will pot seeds for indoor growing and learn how to care for them until it is time for planting later in spring.
Marking the opening of the 2016 year at the Seed Library is an educational resource fair 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on April 9. Attendees will be able to learn about various subjects from community experts.
Location: 6101 N. Keystone Ave. For more information, call 317-275-4410 or visit IMCPL.org.
