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.
The seed library has been extremely popular and we look forward to everyone returning seeds - it's not too late! Pre-labelled envelopes are available at the library to return seeds in - please ask at the desk.
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.
A small but dedicated group of people who volunteer at library events and programs as well as maintain the used book cart. Proceeds from the sale of donated books are used to help fund children's and adult programs as well as to support the "Books for Babies" program and the popular Summer Reading Club.
