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 FOSLS have dissolved their status as a registered not-for-profit society. The final AGM will be held Saturday, October 15th at the library in the Meeting Place. The group will meet later in October to reform as a 'member group' and hold a planning session for the coming year.
Thank-you to all the FOSLS members who have supported the library through their membership. The group will not be taking any new memberships but welcome donations to support library programs for all ages.
