WATCH: Woman stops at all 54 Philly libraries in a single day

The next time you feel you're having a busy and overwhelming day, it might help to remember the video you are about to watch. While you're at it, you can make a good reading list as an aid to unwind.

Kate Copp serves as social media manager for the Free Library of Philadelphia, which has 54 branches spread across Philadelphia.

In an effort to get to know Philadelphia better and showcase what the Free Library has to offer, the South Jersey native decided to make a stop at each and every library location in the city in a single day.

The experience took her 12 hours and three minutes, from 7:30 a.m. to 7:33 p.m. It's a pretty incredible feat if you think about how much territory she had to cover.

"Everybody knows the libraries are obviously spread apart in all different parts of the city," Copp said. "Very different communities [and] those communities have different needs. I still feel like we all are under the same system, the same leadership, with the same mission. So I feel like even though they're very different, we're going to show that maybe they're not so different and far apart after all."
