The Coudersport Public Library will be closed on Tuesday, May 21, for Primary Election Day. As the library serves as a polling location for the Coudersport Borough, only those coming to vote will be allowed in the library building on that day. There will be no circulation of library materials, use of public computers, or library programs on Tuesday, May 21.
The library will also be closed on Monday, May 27, in observance of Memorial Day.
The Coudersport Library is happy to announce the sprouting of a new program, our very own Seed Library! The Seed Library gives our patrons the opportunity to ‘check-out’ heirloom and open-pollinated seeds for free! Our goal is to create a self-sustaining seed library where growers who ‘borrow’ our seeds will save and return seeds to our library after they have harvested their crops. We can then offer the seeds to borrowers during the next growing season and the cycle can repeat itself. Over time, the seeds will become stronger and increasingly acclimated to our Potter County growing conditions. Seed saving has been practiced for thousands of years and is part of our agricultural heritage. It is also an invaluable tool for community building, through the exchange of ideas and experiences that growing from seeds can bring about. There are currently over 60 seed libraries in 23 states and the number is continuing to grow. Public libraries have long encouraged ideas of sustainable living through the circulation and sharing of free library materials and resources among communities. These ideas are entirely aligned with the sustainability brought about by seed saving and sharing, making our public library a natural home for such a program. Check out our Seed Library webpage for more information about the program. And stop by the library anytime to get some seeds!
