Nacogdoches Seed Library at the Public Library

The City of Nacogdoches Public Library is pleased to announce the coming launch of the Nacogdoches Seed Library, a sharing repository of seeds that may be “borrowed” by any library patron for free. Seeds will be supplied from donations, eventually from plants that result from borrowed seeds. The seeds will be catalogued along with user and distributor information on growing and harvesting each seed variety. “This is a big undertaking, both in terms of work and, we hope, local impact,” says Crystal Hicks, assistant library director. “We’re thrilled to have support from Resilient Nacogdoches, Caddo Mounds State Historic Site, and the Nacogdoches Farmers Market, along with others in the community, as we kick off this initiative which we hope will grow into a thriving circulating collection.” The goal is to help preserve our agricultural heritage, share knowledge, and benefit local farmers and gardeners, both experienced and novice. “This kind of initiative protects local family history through the preservation of heirloom varieties,” says Elia Ali, library circulation clerk. “We’re happy to provide a place where anyone can get seeds and information for free to start a garden and become more self-sufficient.” The library is on Facebook (as Nacogdoches Public Library) and Twitter and Instagram (as @friendsofnacpl).
