Noyes Library

Tucked on a residential street lined with trees in Kensington, MD is a picturesque children's library. 

The Noyes Library (pronounced noise) was built in 1893 and was the first public library in the entire metropolitan area. 

Circa 1901

Now solely dedicated to children, the library lives up to it's name and is a place where kids can look through books, be noisy, and have a great time! 

A wise old owl, carved in the 1800s, guards the library.

This library is such a special place for children and adds to the beauty of suburban Maryland.
