As the Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays continue their battle in the American League championship series, the libraries for both cities have had a war of words on Twitter. It's very clever and very funny, and probably the coolest these librarians have looked in their entire lives. It's also the first time libraries have become so heavily involved in sports.
