oldest seed saving library

I ran across an article lately that said: "Ten years ago, a New York State librarian had the nifty idea of adding seed packets to his branch's offerings--a project that blossomed into the Holston Valley Seed Library...." Would that make the HVSL the oldest one in the country? Does anyone know of one that is older?

Start a library.

I am interested in starting a library in my area. Are there resources to get a starter set of seeds to begin my library with? Since I am in Arizona it would have to be drought tolerant and resistant to flooding since we have a monsoon season.

The local library may be interested in this project and once I get it up and running I want to present it to them. With the hope that they might take over and I can focus on growing and canning food for my family.
