Bookcases

Assortment of drawings illustrating a variety of bookcase designs and sizes

Bookcases, also called bookshelves, are pieces of furniture consisting of horizontal shelves traditionally used for the storage of books. With either fixed or adjustable positions for the shelves, bookcases naturally serve a utilitarian purpose and are useful for storing a wide variety of things in private homes, libraries, offices, and retail stores. Variations of bookcases include options for permanent affixation to a wall or floor, freestanding, ranges of height and width, glass doors for protection and security, and the possibility of combining multiple bookcases into larger systems.
