CLOSING THIS SITE - April 14, 2018

Dear Seed Savers,

We are CLOSING the Seed Library Social Network ( This URL will soon point to, which hosts resources on how to start and maintain a seed library. We've chosen to close this site down because it hasn't been very active and it costs a lot of money for our collective to host.

If you have questions about seed libraries or want to share things about your seed library, our Facebook page is one place to stay engaged. If you would like to stay current on what's happening in the seed library movement because you are involved in a seed library or some food access organization, then you can sign up for Cool Beans! Seed Library Newsletter. Sign-up here. This newsletter is meant to support seed libraries and similar organizations so if you are not involved in or planning on getting involved in a seed related organization, please don't sign up.  Back issues of Cool Beans! can be viewed on the home page of
