3Bs Community Reading Initiative

We are excited to present our Barbershops, Beauty Salons, and Books (3Bs) community partners - Another Level Cutz in New Carrollton, MD, Hair + Space Blowdry and Beauty Bar in College Park, MD, and The Loc Shop in Mt. Rainier, MD. 

Through this partnership, books are available for readers of all ages to enjoy while waiting for or receiving a service. Visit our partners to learn more about their services. These owners do more than provide services, connected to the community they also sponsor coat/food drives, and host "pop-up" showcases for up and coming businesses. 

Join our email list, at the bottom of this page, to keep up with everything 3Bs! Share this page on your social media, with family, friends, and colleagues. 

Meet Our Community Reading Partners


Hair + Space Blowdry and Beauty Bar has become the standard for inclusive hair and beauty in the DC Metropolitan Area. Its growing community of #spacegals comes from all over to enjoy a hairstyling experience with a stylist who knows their hair. For so long women of color have had poor experiences at salons. Hair + Space was created because all women deserve an accessible, convenient, luxurious, and on-trend hairstyling and beauty experience. Whether you're getting the signature blowout, cosmic curl styling, or adding a pony, it will be out of this world!





Another Level Cutz is the premier upscale barbershop for haircuts, community involvement, and networking. Boasting 9 barbers and 1 stylist, Another Level Cutz not only provides exceptional hairstyles and styles but also hosts coat drives in the winter, which they expect to expand into food and toy drives. They pride themselves on servicing the community and look forward to seeing you.



The Loc Shop is an appointment only salon that specializes in Locs. They focus exclusively on the maintenance, cleansing, styling, coloring and reattachment of Locs. They have been in business for over 14 years and their guests continue to come to them because of the efficiency of their service and the high attention to customer service. The Loc Shop was built on the premise that what black women want and need more than anything is a timely service, a quality comfortable customer experience and an environment that caters specifically to their hair care needs. 


Barbershops, Beauty Salons, and Books (3Bs) Community Reading Initiative is possible through a collaboration with Prince George's County Parks and Recreation M-NCPPC.
