Map of Kensington Benefits Noyes
A charming map of the Town of Kensington by local artist Jim Haynes went on sale in September 2015. The Town commissioned the 22” x 28” illustrated color poster. Proceeds from sales of the poster ($5 each) are being donated to the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation. The posters are being sold at events in town and the Kensington Row Bookshop.

Volunteer With Us
Tenth-grader Hannah Meyer—who has been making and selling owl-shaped chocolates since she was 12 and has raised almost $2,000 for the Noyes Children's Library Foundation—is proof that there are ways for library supporters of any age to get involved.
The 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. To get involved with the foundation, contact us!
The Noyes Children’s Library Foundation launched the Make MORE Noyes Campaign to fund a major renovation of the 121-year-old library, making it accessible to those with physical disabilities for the first time in history.
