Seed Library

The Seed Library at the East Rockaway Public Library

Who can check out seeds? Anyone!

Is there a limit? 5 packets/person (1 of each kind)

What kinds of seeds are available? We currently have five types of seeds. All are organic, all are great growers for our area, and all types can be planted and harvested from containers or from the ground! Nancy Lettuce (Boston butterhead lettuce), Brandywine tomatoes, Genovese basil, Calendula flowers, and Nasturtium flowers.

How do I check out the seeds?  Go to the circulation desk. They will ask for your name, address and email address!

What if I grow something awesome?  If you grow something awesome and have an Instagram account, please tag @eastrockawaylibrary AND  @seedlibrariesoflongisland so people can see the awesome work being done! Or email the pictures to so we can share them!
