They started as book carts to help librarians shelve books more efficiently. Soon, these workhorses proved so versatile they couldn’t be confined to the library. Today, one of our multi-functional carts is just as apt to be packed with phys ed gear, classroom aids, or even student supplies as books – and doing an exemplary job of transporting or storing all it holds. Every room in the school can benefit from a booktruck. A broader view of booktrucks is needed because their contribution to the educational environment extends beyond being the educator’s helping hand. Now available in a wide spectrum of colors, booktrucks can add a dash of visual excitement to their environment, and silently say that utility can be a celebration. Choose models with sloping shelves for books, flat shelves for oversize objects, bins, or combinations.
