Just 15 Funny Library Tweets

So, for you (and me), I gathered 15 tweets that will hopefully get you to smile and forget momentarily that you should be working on your group project right now.

Full disclosure: I did not make these funny tweets! Please check out these accounts and follow if you like their vibe.
