The director of Prince George\'s County\'s library system has been placed on
paid administrative leave while library officials investigate his job
performance and whether he made a racially insensitive remark last month,
sources with knowledge of the probe said yesterday.

For full story:

The Washington Post Kane, who was appointed to the $92,000-a-year post in 1998, declined to comment, saying he was waiting to speak to his attorney. But two sources with knowledge of the probe said the board is seeking to learn whether Kane, who is white, made a racially charged remark at a Jan. 7 luncheon with directors of six other library systems.
