The Seattle Public Library breaks world record for longest book domino chain

An announcement from Seattle Public Library:

It took a total of seven hours of setup and five tries, but at around 11 p.m. Friday, May 31, The Seattle Public Library set the world’s record for the longest book domino chain. (Note: Confirmed by recordsetter.com.)

The record-breaking event was held on the third floor of the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave. A total of 2,131 books followed a complex pathway that included ramps up and across book stacks, around a large planter in the center of the floor, up and down sets of stairs, bridges and more. At one point, one book has to fall from a shelf to the floor to continue the book domino chain. At different locations while the books are dropping, patrons are reading. One woman, for example, looks like she is reading at the beach, while another couple appears to be having a picnic and reading. A portion of the book domino chain spelled the word “read.”
