I really think it would be better to use that corrugated plastic from 
political ads or psychic reader signs and attach it to the shelves, to 
create walls.  They can be entirely enclosed to prevent perusal.

That solution will waste zero space, and more importantly, the shelves 
contents can't GO anywhere because it's not in a tub.
