IT took 2,131 books, 27 volunteers and seven hours to set up – but Seattle Public Library has achieved the World Record for the world’s largest book domino.

The library used books which were donated or those which were out of date from its own collection.

All of the books involved are now due to be sold to raise money for the library.

It took seven hours to set the chain up in its entirety – however the volunteers had to go through the agony of five failed attempts when the chain was set off too early by accident.

The video was uploaded to YouTube over the weekend and has achieved over 200,000 views.
