Youth Story Times

The Novi Public Library offers a variety of story time programming for youth ranging in age from 12 months to 5 years old. "Story time sticks" are required to enjoy story time. The sticks will be available 15 minutes prior to the start of story time and are limited to the first 40 participants. Registration is required for the "Snack Tales" program. Please choose the story time and session that fits your family’s schedule AND is intended for your Child’s age group.

Children must be the designated age to participate in the story times for that age group. Due to the expected number of participants, each child may attend only one age-appropriate story time each week. Please arrive on time for story time. It is very distracting for the children and the librarian when others arrive after the program has started. Please be considerate of others and do not enter the program if you are late. Thank you for your cooperation.
