Noyes is truly a special place – it’s the oldest public library in the Washington area and one of only four libraries in the U.S. dedicated to children. The Noyes Children’s Library Foundation, which sponsors programs for children, has worked to keep the library open during tough budget times by contributing to operating expenses.
