    A library just outside Denver was telling people to stay inside before it was cool—and, in the process, having a (pretty adorable) Twitter feud with its local parks department.

    Jefferson County Public Library dunks on the outdoors every chance it gets in response to Jeffco Open Space, which manages the county’s outdoor public spaces. Right now, it feels to me like they’re winning. The outside world has bears and coronavirus; inside, there are books and the main threat is becoming trapped in the prison of our own minds.

    Lately, the library managed to fit a dig at Jeffco Open Space into a topical hand-washing song:

    In conclusion, bears are dangerous, wash your hands, and avoid other humans, possibly forever.
