Seed Bank 1500.png

SEED BANK

The Washburn Public Library is home to the community seed bank, located in the basement.

Plan your garden using heirloom seeds, or other seeds available.  If you just want to grow one pot, pick up just a few seeds.  There is no cost involved.

BEAN-BAG TOSS GAMES

Have more fun at your picnic or yard party with a 'bean-bag-toss' game from the library.

There are two sets that can be borrowed.

TELESCOPES

Watch the night sky, or look out across the Big Lake with one of our telescopes. We've got two telescopes for Washburn Library patrons to use for checking out the nighttime skies. We have a Bushnell Voyager, and a Celestron. Both come with instruction packets and are big enough to see the heavens, yet small enough to put in the backseat of your car. Checkout is for a week.
