A five-week project to repair the skylight at the Tenley-Friendship Library will begin on Jan. 2, according to a release.

D.C. Public Library spokesperson George Williams told The Current that the skylight had begun leaking, forcing the repairs to the seven-year-old library building at 4450 Wisconsin Ave. NW.

Interior work will take place after hours and exterior work will not affect library operations, the release states.
