Book Bins


All book bins and carts electronically lock into the sorting system. Level sensors prevent the bins from overflowing and staff-controlled software alerts staff when bins and carts need attention. Our sorting systems allow for multiple bin types in a single installation to meet your library's needs. This provides the option to mix and match book bins, tote bins or stacking carts.
