    Library shelf moving trolley - photo

    Library shelf moving trolley. I'm not really sure how it's functioning without destroying the shelves, but the image is from a website of professional movers who specialize in library moving.

    It appears to have 4 thin forks extending under the shelf base then 4 clamping devices holding the body of the shelf upright. Due to the lack of counter weights there is most likely a twin of this device positioned on the opposite side in which case it would be very stable and not cause the books to fall or any damage to the shelf unit itself. Movers use similar devices to move statues and displays in museums.
