The Nancy Altznauer Memorial Seed Library

Welcome to Perrot Memorial Library’s Nancy Altznauer Memorial Seed Library. A former board member, Nancy was instrumental in planning and executing the Library’s beautiful landscaping and gardens that we enjoy today.

What Is a Seed Library?

A seed library is a place that anyone can come to and get seeds to plant in their garden. It’s a great start for beginner gardeners as it provides easily accessible seeds that one can try growing. It creates a community of gardeners. Seed libraries also foster biodiversity and help the environment.
