Starting August 2, the Main Library and Weaver Library will be open to everyone, including the public. We're looking forward to seeing you. Check out our plans.
Due to COVID-19, the Seed Library will be closed until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The Seed Library is home to a collection of seeds that you can take home and grow in your garden. This is a free service available to UA students, faculty, staff, and the Tucson community thanks to a collaboration between the University of Arizona Libraries and the Students for Sustainability Garden Committee.
The Seed Library is located on the second floor of the Albert B. Weaver Science and Engineering Library. After selecting your seed packets, we'll ask you to fill out a short and simple form.
You don’t need to “check out” the seeds like you would check out a library book. Take what you need, fill out the form, plant your garden, and come back for more.
Our Seed Library is a lending library, so we don’t accept seed returns or donations.
If you’re interested in donating seeds, the Pima County Public Library accepts seed donations from “open-pollinated, heirloom, and/or locally-saved seeds.”
The seeds in our collection are easy to grow and great for beginners. They’re also seasonal and replenished regularly throughout the semester.
Some plants you can grow from seeds in our collection include tomato, beans, and carrots.
