Watch This Massive Book Domino Chain Fall In A Public Library
Mar 2, 2015
The Seattle Public Library system is composed of 26 neighborhood branches, as well as a Central Library and various mobile services. A large number of these branches are Carnegie libraries, meaning that they are among the 2,509 U.S. libraries built through the generosity of Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie.
In 2013, the Seattle Public Library decided to kick off its summer reading program by setting an unusual record. Using 2,131 books, all of which were either donated, outdated, or no longer used in the library's collections, they created the world's longest book domino chain. Naturally, you can't do something like that without making a really satisfying video of the final chain reaction.
