You will get a big assist by adding a front lip or edging of solid material to each shelf. This will stiffen the entire shelf and reduce sag. There is a calculator out there for determining sag given the span. FWW reports that the eye can detect as little as 1/32” of sag per foot. With the calculator you can see how much sag is reduced by the addition of the edging.
