Noyes Owl

Vote for Your Favorite Owl Name

Noyes patrons had many wise and wonderful suggestions for a new name for the carved wooden owl above the library door. The top six names are now on a final ballot, and reflect the library's history and name, the wisdom and wonder we gain from books, and an owl's "hooty" nature. Thank you to everyone who submitted a name - we loved all of them!
We'll announce the owl's new name in our October/November newsletter. We hear that the owl has plans to celebrate, so look for news of a party.

The Noyes Children's Library Foundation is an all-volunteer nonprofit that works to support Noyes, a little library with a big purpose. We're looking to expand our Board and our volunteer base. Now's the time to be part of the next chapter!
Kensington resident and Master Gardener Alison Oppenheim has worked tirelessly to keep the library grounds beautiful for the last four years. It's a family thing - as her husband John can attest - and also intergenerational, proudly illustrated by the neighbors of all ages who work with Alison.
