A library is a boring place where people struggle with sleep. What? Not true!
These animated gifs prove it’s just the opposite. Certainly, “sshhhhhh” is still the primary rule, but it doesn’t mean the library is not an exciting place to come and spend the whole day.
It’s a library where strange things can happen, and the strangest ones take place inside your mind.
Among the animated clips, you will find scenes from the 1978 Superman movie, Silent Library MTV game show, Mr. D television series, and – naturally – Reading Rainbow children’s TV series.
In the list below, we share our favorite loops gathered from Tumblr, Imgur, and Giphy. These three sources are more than enough if you are looking for funny gifs related to books, libraries, and reading.
Is this list missing a funny gif? Share it with us on social media, and we’d be delighted to add it.
