According the video above, on May 31, two college students and 27 volunteers used 2,131 books to build a domino chain that wound around the grounds of the library's flagship location (1000 4th Ave., Seattle, Washington).

While Kelly is usually just as much of a sexist apologist as these guys, to her credit, she tears them a new asshole.
