Our Seed Library provides free local seeds to HBPL cardholders!
Patrons can visit the Central Library and check out up to 4 seed packets per month to grow in their home gardens. At the end of the season, we encourage you to let a few plants go to seed and donate the seeds back to the library for others to use - this creates a sustainable and diverse stock of seeds for our community.
The HBPL Seed Library is supported by the efforts of amazing volunteers and GardenPool, who also provide classes on gardening and seed saving. Best of all: all of these services are free to HBPL cardholders!

Solar panels are virtually maintenance free since the batteries require no water or other regular service and will last for years. Once solar panels are installed there are no recurring costs. Learn more about solar.
