From the Omaha World-Herald:
From the children’s library inside what used to be an old bank vault, out the door and past downtown establishments and white frame houses on Broad Avenue, then up Elliott Street to the Viking Center, a newly-built community building that will contain the new library.
About 420 people formed the chain Tuesday in this town of about 690, linking the two libraries. For about an hour and a half, they moved about 3,000 books before calling it a day.
About 3,000 of the library’s books had already been moved, most of those too big or too delicate for the human chain. About 2,000 remain to be moved.
The new library is expected to open later this week. The $3.2 million Viking Center will serve as a community building for the small city, located about 60 miles southeast of Omaha in Montgomery County.
