Early in June, the Seattle Public Library did something wonderful to launch their Summer Reading Program. Two college students, Luke Greenway and Laura D’Asaro, came up with the idea of setting up a domino chain entirely of books and setting a world record. So the library staff and volunteers got together and set it up, while Playfish Media filmed some of the setting up process and the very satisfying knocking down process. Here’s the fun that resulted:
Note that the library posted this disclaimer with the video: “The books used to make this domino chain were either donated or are out of date and no longer in the library’s collection.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. No books were harmed during the filming of this video.”
We probably could have assumed that they’d have seen to it that the books weren’t harmed. But don’t you wish you had been there?
