You are correct to be concerned about sagging in the middle, especially with a book case added to the top, and even more so if you fill it with books.

I have on occasion used angle iron myself and in your case behind/inside the top front rail. You could also use a piece of hardwood like a 2×6 tucked into the same spot. Otherwise it might be wise to put a centre stile in the middle behind the doors, and extend another leg under it
