Planted: Cerritos Seed Library

View seed labels with details and planting instructions.

Cerritos Library patrons are invited to check out seeds from our new Seed Library. The Seed Library allows patrons to check out seeds for native California plants such as wildflowers, sunflowers and a pollinator mix of flowers. A variety of vegetable, fruit, and herb seeds will be available. We hope that this seed library will support community members' efforts to live healthier, sustainable lifestyles.

Seed Library use:

Seeds can be acquired by visiting the Library during regular business hours. The Seed Library is located near the Circulation Desk. Patrons may checkout up to four seed packets per month. Patrons may keep the seeds and packets and do not have to return any items to the Library. Seeds can be checked out by any patron aged 13 or older.

The project is supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the California State Librarian.
