  • This Library system is racist AF y'all making fucking podcasts but taking all the books and materials from the areas with the most poc, specifically black communities. The branches in the suitland area are disgusting and literally rotting with like 4 shelves of books but go to laurel or South Bowie or new Carrollton... We see you PGCMLS. What kind of corporate mafia library has CEOs?! Disgusting.
