The Kid Should See This

Book Domino Chain World Record at the Seattle Public Library

Watch more with these video collections:

In 2013, college students Luke Greenway and Laura D’Asaro came together with 27 volunteers, seven hours of work, five attempts, and 2,131 books to create the longest book domino chain in the world at the Seattle Public Library.

“The books used to make this domino chain were either donated or are out of date and no longer in the library’s collection. They are now being sold by the Friends of Seattle Public Library to help raise money for library programs and services.”

The library used the new world record to celebrate and promote their 2013 Summer Reading Program.
