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.

The previous record of a 1,000-book domino chain was achieved by an organization called Responsible Fishing in the United Kingdom in 2011.
