The Lawn Library is a FREE resource for Manitoba residents that allows you to try and test lawn care tools used in the process of organic lawn care without having to purchase them. We also have many books on organic lawn care, weeds, and gardening in our library.

Borrowers are required to:

  • fill out a patron form,
  • sign a waiver of liability,
