About Bookbins™

Kids love to look at Bookbins books

Kids will bypass rows of regular bookshelves to explore whatever you stock in a Bookbins™ library book bin. A Bookbins™ collection is presented at just their height. And kids love the excitement of seeing the books' covers — so much easier for their hands to manage than shelves. Roll our portable library book bins onto the floor and watch the youngsters flock to them. Bookbins™ make books more exciting!

How many books will a BOOKBIN hold?

The following BOOKBIN capacities assume an average picture book thickness of 3/8", shelved with a bit of “slack” in each compartment. If books are jam-packed into the available space the capacities may actually be greater, however we do not recommend this; leaving a bit of air in each compartment facilitates browsing and makes re-shelving easier.
