Philip and Erin Stead, author and illustrator of 2011 Caldecott winner A Sick Day for Amos McGee, at the Noyes Library in February 2012.
This past year was an exciting one for the Noyes Children’s Library. Since 2010, your donations have provided funds to cover the salaries of most of the staff for the library. Beginning in July, 2012, Montgomery County resumed responsibility for paying the salaries of all Noyes staff.
However, Montgomery County still does not have funds for the much-needed renovation and expansion of Noyes. As Noyes turns 120 years old in 2013, the Foundation will take the lead in providing funds for an amazing capital project, jointly planned and executed by the public and private sectors, to Make More Noyes! The proposed renovation will provide three stories of beautiful space within the historic building, all to further the Library’s mission of connecting children and their families to the world of books.
