A Community Pitches in to Move the Library by Human Chain

The hamlet of Wildwood, Alberta moved their library in August – over 12,000 books – hand-by-hand. About half of the hamlet’s population of 250 turned up to move the books one block to their new, larger location.

I’m sure the advertising helped, but in a community of this size people spread the news by word-of-mouth and are used to pitching in when something needs to be done. What a great event!
