Library Seed Exchange 2021 - More Seeds Available!
The Southborough Library Seed Request Form is now available through May 28th! Patrons can withdraw individual seed packets each spring from the Library Seed Exchange and then plant the seeds with hopes that more seeds will be returned in the fall.
Patrons can now select up to 5 seed packets per person. This includes a limited selection of herbs, vegetables, and flowers. Please allow library staff up to 48 business hours to respond to any seed exchange request.
You will receive notification when your request is fulfilled at which time you can schedule a curbside pickup by calling us at 508-485-5031.
