Madelyn Helling Debuts Seed Library

You don’t need a library card to participate. Wilburn says this is a program they’ve wanted to do for a long time, but didn’t have the funding. Measure A, which was the library sales tax increase, provided funding for a new Adult Services Librarian, and overseeing the seed library is part of those duties.
