Library Notes: If it’s spring, it’s time for the seed library

The Stonington Free Library Seed Library opened for the season on March 16.

The seed library is organized by URI Master Gardener Noreen Kepple and SFL staff member Ivy Hope Burns. It will be set up on a table inside the library, near the front desk.

Community members are welcome to select from a variety of vegetable and flower seeds. The seeds are donated by various companies and are available while supplies last.

The seed library is a service we are happy to offer as a way to help community members grow their own gardens at home. For more information, email

This year, we ask that patrons thoroughly sanitize their hands before browsing the seed packets. If you prefer to receive seeds in a no-contact manner, call or email the library to request seeds via curbside pick up or postal mail.

Karla Umland is assistant director of Stonington Free Library. She will be highlighting services offered by the library monthly.
