STANTON, Iowa (AP) - A human chain of more than 400 people in western Iowa has helped move books from an old library to a new one.

People in the small community of Stanton lined the streets Tuesday to pass the books from the old library in the downtown area to a new community building.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1fRCwIT ) people moved about 3,000 books in about an hour and a half. About another 3,000 books were moved prior to Tuesday’s event because they were either too big or too delicate for the human chain. Another 2,000 books will be transported a different way.

The new library is expected to open this month.
