I am so baffled by this. I live in a library. We have bookshelves from Ikea and some of them are sagging after a few years because of the weight of our books. They are not sagging much, but a bit. Is this a case that real plywood is better then whatever they make bookcases out of at Ikea?

Then again, the bookcases that we have that are solid wood also have this issue. However they are only about a half inch thick for the shelves.

What am I missing?
