Trying to keep your little ones busy this winter?

Looking for something to do in the Northville or Novi Michigan area?

This month has been full of freezing temperatures and snow storms. The snow may be wonderful to look at, but it is too cold to go out and explore. While it may seem like there is nothing to do in the winter, there is a lot to do in Northville and Novi, Michigan especially when you have young children.

In this article, you will find information about the Northville District Library’s winter 2015 Storytimes. The Storytimes are provided for children birth to 3rd grade.
