Seed Library

The Summerland branch began a seed library in the fall of 2015.  Seeds may be 'borrowed' with a library card much as a book would be.  We ask borrowers to sign the seeds out, take them home and grow them, enjoy the harvest and save some seeds from every batch grown.  Then, return the dried seeds to the library.  Pre-labelled envelopes are available at the library to return seeds in - please ask at the desk.  The seed library has been extremely popular and we look forward to everyone returning seeds in the fall.  Hope you are enjoying your gardens!



This volunteer group has been active at the Summerland Library since 1999.  Volunteers bring library materials to those that are homebound and cannot get into the library.  If you are interested in joining this group of dedicated volunteers please ask at the circulation desk.



The Friends of the Summerland Library mission statement:

 "To encourage and support literacy for all".  The Friends of the Library advocate awareness of library services through their support of programs, presenting author visits and hands-on participation in literacy-based activities.  The directors of the FOSLS meet the first Thursday each month downstairs in the library basement viewing room.
