Maybury Farm: Storytime Volunteers

Save to Favorites

Northville Community Foundation-Maybury Farm

  • 67 people are interested
Maybury Farm

Maybury is an educational working farm located in Northville. We are open to the public April-October and offer a free storytime with paid admission every Wednesday and Thursday at 11:00am beginning in June. Parents and tots come out to enjoy a book or two under a shady tree. Be part of the community and volunteer to read stories and also enjoy the children and the farm. We are looking for volunteers who are great storytellers, love to interact with children and enjoy being outside in the summer!

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.
