Friends Special Programs

Read to Me

  It's never too early to begin reading to your baby! The Read to Me program (formerly Books for Babies), sponsored by the Friends of the Library, provides parents of babies with a complimentary gift bag filled with a board book, bib, library services information, and more. We encourage you to make an appointment to bring your baby for a visit to the library and receive a free gift bag. All babies up to a year old living in Northville City or Township are eligible.

Please contact Read to Me Coordinator, Judy DeFrancesco, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange for delivery of the free Read to Me bag of goodies. Or, stop by the Information Desk to request a Read to Me contact card to telephone Judy. We look forward to meeting you and your baby!

Friends of the Library Books for Babies Coordinator Judy DeFrancesco presents two new library visitors with free gift bags as part of the Books for Babies program.
