The present Tenley-Friendship branch of the DC Public Library at 4450 Wisconsin Avenue, N.W. was dedicated on October 27, 1960. The first public library branch located in the Tenleytown area occupied a single room of the newly opened Bernard T. Janney School, built at Wisconsin Avenue and Albemarle Street, N.W. in 1925. The library, opened in September 1926, was the result of citizen action mainly on the part of the Northwest Suburban Citizens Association.Today, the Tenley-Friendship branch holds a collection of 100,000 volumes, and circulates around 80,000 volumes annually. The branch is known for its author lecture series, monthly book discussion groups, and its exemplary collection of garden books donated by Washington Post columnist Henry C. Mitchell.
