* AWPL Seed Library:  The AWPL Seed Library is open!  The way it works is simple:  local gardeners “borrow” seeds from the library at planting time, and later "donate" seeds after harvesting to replenish the Seed Library.  We are now encouraging patrons to "check out" seeds to take home and plant, as well as accepting seeds of all types to continue stocking the library.  Find the Seed Library on the shelf outside the Wisner Room.  Seed donations may be dropped off at the Help Desk in a sealed container labelled with the name of the seed and any other details available - including whether the seeds are organic. For more information, please call the Library's Help Desk at 986-1047, ext. 3.
