Book lovers "working on the chain gang"

The public library in Norman, Oklahoma, recent moved from it's old building to a brand new facility about a quarter mile away. When moving day arrived, the library posted the event on Facebook, hoping that a few folks would come and help move the books. To their delight, more than 650 kids, adults and seniors showed up to help.

Together, they formed a human chain between the two buildings and moved all the children's books one-by-one down the line. The entire process took about 45 minutes. Said one participant, "It's my hometown library, and we wanted to be part of history." The library managed to capture the magic of the event by attaching a GoPro camera to a copy of "Chicken Little" as it was passed down the line, and the resulting video is very endearing.
