Seed Library

Get your garden off to a great start with seeds from the library.  Lincoln County Public Library participates in the Kentucky Seed Library Consortium. This enables us to purchase bulk quantities to provide our communities with a wide variety of seeds. Quantities are limited. We request that households limit themselves to 1 bag per home. The amounts provided should be enough for the typical home garden. Also, if you have extra, please share with family, friends, neighbors, etc.  Be sure to check in March for the seed library opening day.
