We've all lined up dominoes and knocked them over to see them all form a kinetic sculpture. But can you imagine it done with books? And in a library?


On May 31, 2014, the Seattle Public Library kicked off a summer reading program in a big way. With the help of a couple of college students, the library lined up over two thousand books domino-style and then tipped the first book over.

The event was captured by RecordSetter, a social media website containing a collection of world records created by the public and evaluated by staff and visitors to the site.


At the time, the event set a world record for Seattle's library. It has since been broken by William Jewell College.
