“A library is a place where people come together to envision their future. It should be a welcoming place that stands the test of time with elegance.”
A founding partner of Noll & Tam, Chris Noll considers himself a master of ceremonies – standing just outside the spotlight, but keeping the groove going. Chris loves bringing people together: “Every idea is a welcome idea. It may not work but, yes, let’s go out on that limb.” He finds that the best solutions are usually based upon a diversity of opinions. He is skilled at distilling ideas to identify a core vision that ties everything together.
Chris’s fondness for animals runs deep. His dog Maisie, a ginger poodle, is the official greeter for visitors to Noll & Tam. Our delivery people come supplied with dog treats.
Chris loves libraries and working with librarians. He is actively involved with the California Library Association (CLA) and the American Library Association (ALA). He feels that libraries carry the weight of history and represent the best ideals of democracy, freedom, and independent thinking.
He has had overdue books, but always pays his fines on time.
