Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett and Director of Libraries Parker Hamilton announced in August that Noyes Children's Library will now house the Jan Jablonski Early Literacy Training Center. The Center honors Jablonski's service to Noyes and commitment to early literacy, and will enable MCPL to concentrate its early literacy initiatives in a unique and child-centered environment.
In addition, friends of Jan and Dan Jablonski have made a major donation to the Foundation's Make MORE Noyes Campaign in Jan's memory. "This exciting donation comes at a perfect time, as the Foundation and MCPL work toward a shared vision in the Jan Jablonski Early Literacy Training Center," said the Foundation's Sheila Dinn. "The Center needs space to do MORE for early literacy, so this donation is an important step in funding the Make MORE Noyes Renovation."
