Rated 5 out of 5 by ecelibrary from Very sturdy, perfect size This replaces a "bargain" book cart which really wasn't much cheaper than this new one. That book cart really wasn't horrible for the light use it got, but another department claimed it and if we were going to replace it, I didn't want one that tilted and strained against its joints. This is all solid metal with tight welds. The all metal construction makes it feel a bit heavier but the very smooth wheels makes it easier to move than the other one, even loaded up. The 24" length (of the "3 Sloping Narrow" model) is perfect for our space and an oddly unique measurement for booktrucks on the market. It fits perfectly at the end of a library row for easy storage and access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anblie from Beautiful I had purchased a couple of these 2 years ago. I love them. They move smoothly and quietly. The students love that they are different colors. My latest we call "Big Blue".

Rated 5 out of 5 by ejacobskind from The Best!! I bought this booktruck to replace a larger double-sided one and I'm so glad I made the decision to do so. The shelves on my old one were very shallow. The problem was that I would pull one book out and the other books on the shelf would tumble to the floor. I no longer have that problem Yay! The new booktruck rolls from one area to the next with ease. A pleasure! I ordered this new booktruck in purple and I really love the color. What can I say... It's me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ryguy from Smooth Sailin' We recently purchased the end of range carts and they are great. We do have a few of the 3' carts of the same style. I have found that when the 3' carts are full they can become difficult to steer. The 2' are petite and are MUCH easier to steer. Shelvers feel more productive as the amount of books to be re-shelved per cart is much less daunting. I thought that the carts would be too small but they are perfect. VERY happy with our decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by geriraz from Rugged and handsome too! I purchased the 24 in wide Smith System Sloping Shelf Book Truck in Persian blue. All I had to do once it arrived was slot the wheels in place. It feels very well built and sturdy. I bought it for picture books which were too wide for my existing book trucks. I like the fact that it has a back. I also bought a set of the dividers, and I am happy with them also. I am hoping to purchase another to use with nonfiction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rneiswinger from Clementine Orange I needed a single sided booktruck to show off some of my new series. My old one was double sided but we only used one side and it was ugly. This one is perfect, single sided in clementine orange, much more attractive and functional. Brightens up the library. Coordinates with our rust colored seat cushions but in a far more up to date color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amurphy from We love these little booktrucks! This is the second small booktruck that we have bought and we love them. They fit perfectly at the end of our bookcases and they are super easy to roll around. We use them for shelving books, weeding books, and even for display purposes. We have a blue one and a green one and they are both beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WPL1 from We roll with the best To paraphrase Howlin Wolf, the book cart is built for comfort and not for speed. Just ask my 93 year old volunteer who drives materials around the library as easily and nimbly as she drives her Cobra Spider. She picked the blue color and we love it. The cart is the envy of the high school librarian...
