Seed libraries available in Seymour, Crothersville and Medora


The Jackson County Public Library has a seed library program that was started in 2021.

The Seed Library is a collection of heirloom seeds (flower, fruit, herb, vegetable) that anyone can take to plant and grow at home. A library card or library district residency is not required to participate.

The collection has heirloom seeds purchased with funds from the library’s endowment with the Community Foundation of Jackson County, purchased with nonprint materials budget and others donated by seed companies.

Since supplies are limited, there is a limit of five packets per household each day, and there is no guarantee on availability. At this time, the library does not accept donations or saved seeds due to state seed law and regulations.

Seed packets are housed in old card catalogs at the Seymour and Crothersville libraries and also are available at the desk at the Medora Library. Ask any staff member for assistance.

Anyone interested in participating or with questions about the Seed Library can visit Information Services upstairs at the Seymour Library or the Crothersville or Medora libraries, email seeds@ , or call Information Services at 812-523-INFO (4636). A webpage is also available at

Seeds can be sent to the Discovery Bus on request.
