Library Book Trucks

If you're looking for a way to store your kids' books in a way that keeps them neat and easily accessible, how about taking a cue from librarians and go with a heavy-duty book truck? These carts on wheels are the real thing, made of steel or wood, with huge weight capacities. They're built to last and have a geek-chic retro vibe to them that we absolutely love.

We selected 5 from various educational furniture suppliers that think look promising, but you can always check Google to see if you can find any suppliers locally since shipping can cost quite a bit.
