Benefits of the Cantilever Carts

The benefits of using cantilever carts include:

  • Configurable: The shelves are easy to assemble, rearrange, and reconfigure any time you need.
  • Easily Movable: Because the carts are on wheels, you can roll them anywhere you want.

Examples of How to Use the Cantilever Cartslibrary books are mobile in cantilever carts with a custom appearance

Cantilever carts can be used to give library patrons easy access to frequently used items. For example, during the school year you can rotate books that are frequently on reading lists to be displayed at the front of your library. Keeping them all stored in the carts provides you with an easy solution for switching out which books will be featured.

Another area to use the carts in is the children’s section. Because special events like reading groups occur periodically, librarians are always rearranging the section to offer more space. Keeping items stored in the carts allows you to easily move books out of the way and create open spaces.
