Launching Summer Reading, Book-Domino Style

dominobookTo kick off its Summer Reading Program, the Seattle Public Library set a world record with a library-appropriate domino chain.

Twenty-seven volunteers lined up 2,131 books and knocked them all down. It took the volunteers seven hours and five failed attempts to create the record-setting chain shown in this video.

The books weren’t part of the library’s current collection; they were all either donated or retired, and were sold as a library fundraiser.

“Every Hero Tells A Story,” our Summer Reading Program, kicks off on Saturday, June 20. We can’t promise a lengthy book-domino chain, but we can promise some powerful Super Hero fun!
