Kansas City Public Library ignites World Series feud with N.Y. counterparts
The Kansas City Public Library system, fresh off its “victory” over its counterpart in Toronto during the ALCS battle between the Royals and Blue Jays, has carried some swagger into the World Series and began again its literary Twitter takedowns by igniting a feud with both the Queens Library as well as the New York Public Library system.
NJ Advanced Media has been chronicling the “book feud” and what follows is an adequate summary of the social media smack talk that has ensued over the past few days.

Well, the Queens Library wasn’t going to take any guff without responding in kind.
Oh, it's on now, @KCLibrary! #RoyalPain #WorldSeries #YaGottaBelieve #LGM pic.twitter.com/kXs9pGmvwJ

And then the New York Public Library got in on the action:
Hey, @KCLibrary, don't forget – one game does not a #WorldSeries victory make. #LGM pic.twitter.com/Kd8nODC8rB

The back-and-forth continued with the Kansas City Public Library exuding confidence and the New York Public Library insisting all is not lost as the Mets attempt to crawl out of an 0-2 hole and get back into the World Series with a critical Game 3 win at Citi Field on Friday.
That was amazing, @Royals! ⚾?⚾ See you soon @nypl @QueensLibrary Coming to your town #TaketheCrown #WorldSeries pic.twitter.com/2W3yNTtAJi

Oh, it’s on. It’s on like Donkey Kong … or instead of a video game name, perhaps some literary reference would be more apropos in light of this subject matter.
