31,000 books lined up at Wyandanch schools believed to be world record

The hallways, gyms and sidewalks of two elementary schools in Wyandanch were lined with 31,000 books on Thursday, setting what a nonprofit organization believed was a Guinness world record for the longest line of books. The Book Fairies organization said that by their calculations and those of surveyors, they broke the current record of 2.64 miles, laying down at least 3 miles of books. At the end, all the books were donated to Wyandanch schools and the community.
