Loveland Public Library’s Seed Library Has Gone Curbside!
To order by phone, call: (970) 962-2402
How Does It Work?
The planned launch of our seed library on March 19th was thrown off course, like so many other things, by the Coronovirus pandemic.
None-the-less, we’d like to distribute the seeds in our seed library in order to give patrons time to plant and grow food this season.
Patrons can select packets of seed from the list below and we will do our best to fulfill requests. Orders can be made directly through the link above, or you may phone 970-962-2402. Please be prepared to leave a clear message with your name, phone number, and seed requests.
Our seeds have been donated, and we cannot guarantee varieties or stock levels. When we run out of something it will be gone. We will, however, try to accommodate as best as we can. Nearly all of our seeds are heirloom and open-pollinated varieties.
Once we receive your request we will package seeds and they will be available for curb-side pick up at the library. Requests received by 3 pm will be available for pick up the following day at 10am. Curbside pickup runs 10am-3pm Monday through Saturday. Seed requests will be packed in accordance with safe handling practices as set out by the city by trained employees wearing masks. Seeds have been donated by our sponsors: BBB Seeds, True Leaf Market, Baker Creek Seeds, and Loveland Garden Center and Nursery. They were obtained by the library prior to March 2020, and have been stored here in quarantine since our closure in mid-March.
