The Peabody Stack Room of the George Peabody Library, Baltimore, Maryland
The George Peabody Library, formerly the Library of the Peabody Institute of the City of Baltimore, dates from the founding of the Peabody Institute in 1857. It contains more than 300,000 titles—most of which date from the eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries. Renowned for its striking architectural interior, the Peabody Stack Room contains five tiers of ornamental cast-iron balconies, which rise dramatically to the skylight 61 feet above the floor.
In addition to its traditional use as a research library, it is available as an event space. The library accommodates wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, private dinners, holiday parties and lectures.
omg I want to go
suck on THAT anti-immigration reform racists!!!
First of all, fuck the police officer who charged Bolanos. A woman being abused calls for help from the authorities, expects them to protect her, and is instead charged with illegally selling a $10 phone card. A $10 phone card. Fuck that. It is the height of irresponsibility, misogyny, racism, pick an -ism. It’s so repulsive it makes the bile rise up in my throat.
Fuck that officer, and fuck the Obama administration with its “Secure Communities” plan. “Secure Communities” apparently means broken communities, separated communities, communities missing parents and other family members, communities living in fear, communities in which women can be beaten with impunity because if they call the cops to help them, no matter how fearful for their lives they just may be, they will be severely penalized. This is what “Secure Communities” means? Fuck that.
No, I’m not sorry for either the language or the sentiments. I’m fucking pissed.
