Southwick Library's Seed Library Opening April 12!


Southwick Library's Seed Library Opening April 12!

The SPL is excited to announce the start of our new seed library! The Suzanne Davis Seed Library was named after one of our longtime trustees who recently passed. We wanted to honor Suzanne for her years of service and thought there was no better way to honor a gardener than naming our seed library after her.

Stop by the library anytime during open hours (you no longer need an appointment) and find our seed library right next to the Library of Things in our repurposed card catalog. We have plenty of seeds to choose from ranging from veggies to herbs and flowers. Take a packet of seeds and instructions (no more than 2 per person, per visit please), go home, plant, and watch them grow! We plan on hosting events throughout the spring to get you excited about gardening. 

On April 21 at 6:30pm, join us for Cooking and Gardening with Herbs- Herbs enhance a recipe far beyond what a sprinkling of salt and pepper can do. They add flavor, color, and give recipes their cultural identity. 

Chef and gardener Liz Barbour will take you on a slide presentation tour through her cottage sized edible gardens and explore all the way you can use herbs as part of an edible landscape. 
Following her presentation, Liz will create 2 healthy recipes using herb combinations that you can purchase and grow in your own garden. This program will be on Zoom. Email us at to sign up!

We look forward to seeing you soon at the Southwick Public Library!
