Brodart has been selling library supplies since 1939. The company was established when founder Arthur Brody invented the plastic book jacket by washing the emulsion off some film and then wrapping the film around a book for extra protection. In the 1950s, the company expanded into book distribution as well as the manufacturing of furniture for libraries.
