  • crisp days perfect for your favorite sweater
  • homemade apple cider, hot or cold it’s tasty
  • watching backyard friends store for the winter

And I’m sure you can think of many more wonderful things you look forward to each fall. Here are a few favorite finds I’ve come across that I hope you can use!

Seed Library

As I was rummaging around online in the JMU Library, I came across the Community Seed Library. Huh?! As the page states, “The Community Seed Library is a self-service seed sharing library provided by JMU Libraries and available to all. No library card necessary!”

The Community Seed Library is located at Carrier at JMU, the cabinet in the Main Lobby (to the right of the Service Desk). It is also at the Massanutten Library (Central Branch), the cabinet on the 2nd floor next to the Reference Desk (past the Children’s Section).

Check out this great find! There is an explanation of How It Works, great information on Seed Saving & Gardening Resources, and links to other Local Organizations.
