Is creating a database an extracurricular ?

At my house we have 500+ books and I know how to create databases and such.this is a long term project that I have planned and I am wondering if it could be considered as an extracurricular or would it be better to use my skills in creating databases at a larger scale like school library .

Yes! That would most definitely be considered an extracurricular, and I'd say it's an interesting one as well.

I would suggest that you create a database both at home and in a school library because it would show an admissions officer evolution with your interest in databases/comp sci. If this is an extremely significant extracurricular, you could talk about it in your essays, depicting your start with creating databases at home and eventually growing into a larger scale with school libraries.
