Youth Story Times

PDF Icon For the best story time experience, click here for a list of our guidelines.

The Novi Public Library offers a variety of story time programming for youth ranging in age from birth to 5 years old. "Story time tickets" are required to enjoy story time. The tickets will be available 15 minutes prior to the start of story time and are limited to the first 45 participants.

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.
