Read-a-thon Raises the Roof (and Funds for Noyes Renovations)

Young readers throughout the area participated in the Pennies-a-Page Read-a-thon to help raise money for the Make MORE Noyes Campaign. Together they read more than 15,000 pages and collected more than $1,000 from their sponsors during three weeks in April. The readers joined other friends of Noyes to celebrate their success at a family dance party at Kensington Town Hall on April 25. Participants who haven't yet turned in donations can bring them to Noyes Library.
