While Norman was turning out by the hundreds to support its libraries Sunday, the Pioneer Library System was capturing it all on a Go Pro.  

Nearly 600 Norman Public Central Library lovers formed a human chain across Andrews Park Sunday to pass the old Central Library's folktale book collection to the new Central Library. 

The book brigade, organized by the library system, stretched about 1,700 feet from shelf to shelf, according to Keith Merckx, marketing & communications manager with the Pioneer Library System.

Thanks to the Go Pro camera the library system attached to a copy of Chicken Little, most of the line was caught on camera. Tiny kids making faces, superheroes in costume and even Norman Mayor Breea Clark are visible in the eight minutes it takes for the book and camera to make it to the end of the line.

Merckx said he also walked the whole line with a camera, and counted about 588 book brigade participants. 

The new Public Library Central will have its grand opening at 2 p.m. Nov. 3.
