* AWPL Seed Library:  The AWPL Seed Library is ready to accept donations!  A seed library takes some time and effort to put together, but the way it works is simple: local gardeners donate seeds after harvesting, and “borrow” seeds from the library at planting time. We are now accepting seeds of all types to stock the library.  Please bring any seed donations in a sealed bag, envelope or other container labelled with the name of the seed and any other details you can provide - including whether the seeds are organic. We hope to be able to open the seed collection by this fall, and it will be free and available to all library users. For more information, please call the Library's Help Desk at 986-1047, ext. 3.
