Tenleytown's long-awaited new library

The new Tenley-Friendship Library will open Monday, Jan. 24, five years after discussions about replacing it began. It will house 80,000 books, DVDs and CDs, 32 computers and have its own Wi-Fi.

Floor-to-ceiling

The public areas of the library are surrounded on three sides by floor-to-ceiling glass walls that let in a lot of light. But the harshest light is blocked by the panels on the outside.
