INFO & GUIDES
Rated 4 out of 5 by KidsLibrarian from I bought this a month ago and I like it. I also bought the wheels (I was annoyed that they weren't part of the kit and you had to purchase them separately) and they make this shelf very versatile. It is easy to move around (remember to take the books off first :)) and it is great for making themed displays. I gave it a rating of 4 stars because I was hoping to paint the wood a fun color like neon green, but sadly the wood-looking panels are not... wood. They are some crazy composite and are not paintable. But otherwise, its a nice portable shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adrienne from Beautiful book display I purchased two units, plus the caster wheels, and have them facing back-to-back like in the picture. The exception is that because the wheels only go on two of the four legs and increase the overall height, the arc at the top does not touch. If you bring the arc together, then the front wheels would be off the ground and the whole unit would be tippy. I'd rather have wheels any day to have a flexible space. Quality construction, heavy duty steel shelves. Delivery was quick. Striking shape. I expect this to hold up very well. The display sign is an off-size, so expect to do a little resizing and trimming of your designs. The instructions were a little sparse, but no major challenges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lowell from Stylish library shelves I love the way this looks. It really draws attention to whatever you put on it since the style stands out. Perfect for small collections you want to highlight. FYI - small children naturally want to run through the opening in the middle. Something to think about when considering placement in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by love2read from Books are FLYING off the shelves Purchased this to use with our display of Sunshine State Young Readers Awards books. Books display like those on a Book Fair - Cover out. Our SSYRA books are in such high demand now that we've had to limit to 1 book/student and holds created only for our 8th graders. I would definitely purchase this again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by hounds from Good purchase but. . . Looks nice. Easy to assemble. Bought the casters (does not come with them) so shelf was mobile and it is easy to move. As our only mobile bookshelf, it is a nice addition to our library and allows for flexible use. I would have rated it five stars if the shelf hadn't arrived with a missing piece of hardware. However, I corrected the situation and am pleased with the look and flexibility of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LibraryLady509 from Love this display We bought 3 for our library, and we just love them. They are sturdy and look very nice. I am going to buy a few more new school year. Excellent purchase :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by maureeng from Tall with lots of space on the shelves I bought one of these book pod displays last year for my school library and just bought another one of them with this year's supply money although, darn it, I forgot to order the wheels that come separately. They are tall which very little visual interference which makes the items I place on the shelves much more visible than the low shelves I currently using to house my magazines. I use the one I bought last year to display what few new books I get new every month and they get checked out much more frequently so I'm trying another one to see if my magazines will check out more often too. I like how portable they are (well, my new pod will be portable once I order those wheels ...) so it's easy to switch their location as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NMHS librarian from Really sturdy and looks great! I bought this recently for my library and have gotten lots of positive remarks from both teachers and students. It was exactly what we had been needing to display books. I bought two and connected them but like the flexibility of knowing I can use them as separate units as well. One thing to note is that you cannot use the optional casters if you are connecting the units. This was in the assembly instructions, but was not clear to me at the time I purchased them.
