Seed Library

The Seed Library is now housed at the South Broadway branch.

This move was needed for several reasons:

  • A change in staffing at Juan Tabo required a different approach to the curation of this collection.
  • Housing the Seed Library in a different branch offered more citizens a chance to utilize this unique collection and brought awareness to a new neighborhood.
  • Juan Tabo currently offers customers several special collections or services (Early Literacy Center, Ukulele Loan Program) and South Broadway did not currently offer a special collection.

If you have questions contact us at or 764-1742.
