Event Details:

Press release:

We’re excited (and a little nervous) to announce that we – together with Central Library – are attempting to break the record for the longest book domino chain! We’ve got the books, a plan and an amazing space…

The 27th of August will see us at Central Library bright and early, as we knock over the first of a 2500-strong line of books. Anyone keen to witness the event and support the attempt is more than welcome!

Time: 09.00
Venue: Central Library (corner of Parade and Darling Streets)

This is more than just us having fun though – please bring a book to donate to Westridge Library (the focus school of for the 2013 Open Book Library Project).

This is a book we found while practising – seemed apt!

For any further information, please contact Kate Thompson-Duwe on or 021 424 4802.
