A Strong Sense of Community Since 1894
One of the things that makes the Noyes Children's Library so special is its location in the historic town of Kensington, MD. Tucked into a residential neighborhood that was first developed in 1893, Noyes shares its charm and fairytale appearance with houses that boast turrets and towers and amazing architectural details.
A visit to Noyes can include a stop at one of Kensington's excellent restaurants, bakeries or ice cream shops. Children will enjoy running around in the Town's seven parks - Kensington has been designated a "Tree City, U.S.A." for its wealth of green space - or watching the trains at the historic Kensington Station. A stroll down Howard Avenue and surrounding streets offers visitors the chance to shop at unique stores offering antiques, books, and locally-sourced artisan crafts and decorative items; and to browse through a wide range of art galleries!
