Ongoing Programs

TEEN SPACE

The Novi Public Library has partnered with the City of Novi Parks & Recreation Department, Novi Community School District, and Novi Youth Assistance to offer a Teen Space in the West Side Meeting Room of the Library on Mondays- Fridays 2-5 pm (except over vacation breaks) during the school year. The Teen Space was created for students to “hang out” and socialize when traditional use of the library is not needed, and is open to students in grades 7-12.

TEEN ADVISORY BOARD

Join the TAB as we create and plan programs for teens at the Library. Meeting attendance will count as volunteer time.  Click here for more information on the Teen Advisory Board.
