14 Times Librarians Had the Best Sense of Humor
Check out these funny signs that prove that even book people, like librarians, can have the best sense of humor.

You were always scolded with a hard, “Shhh” if things ever got too rambunctious, and you were always taught that there’s no room for monkey business in the library.

Check out these funny signs that prove that book people can have the best sense of humor. The next time you’re at the library, make sure to check out the funniest books of all time.
