Boston Public Library Delivery Tote Bag

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
A century later, the Boston Public Library's bookbag still delivers
More than 100 years ago, the workers of the Boston Public Library figured out that the best way to ferry books between their branches was in this deep, heavy-duty, easily grasped bag -- one in each hand, to balance the load. Our re-creation of this living antique is true to the original but even stronger. Imagine how many grocery bags you can carry in one trip rather than ten. And how easily yoga mats and gym gear will transport. Inside the delivery bag is the quotation that's etched on the Boylston Street side of the main library: "The commonwealth requires the education of the people as the safeguard of order and liberty."
  • Rugged canvas with robust handles
  • Double stitched and reinforced with a double bottom
  • Capable of holding 27 pounds of books
  • Just 1 1/2 pounds empty
  • 15W x 10 3/4D x 22 1/4H
A portion of each sale benefits the Boston Public Library, America's only public library that is also a presidential library, and where its 28 branches still shuttle books in these bags every day.

The picture of this bag is over deceiving.
It looks deep and narrow at the top when in fact it has a very wide top opening. I needed it to be as pictured and was very disappointed.

Bought one and should buy another.

By 

from Brookings, SD

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Boston Public Library Delivery Tote Bag:

I use this commodious, study, yet stylish bag for travel and shopping. I throw in shoes, and any number of oddly shaped items I am positive I can't do without, for easy storage and transport to my destination. It also serves when I go to the grocery store. I plop in the myriad of plastic bags with never a worry that a ripped seam will deposit my purchases on the ground. A friend who goes camping followed my recommendation and she's pleased as punch.

By

Comments about Levenger Boston Public Library Delivery Tote Bag:

Thought this looked like a perfect gift for two writer friends. Once I'd examined it, I went back and ordered myself a couple. A huge hit with all recipients. I'm using one to store books for my Little Free Library.

Sturdy, no nonsense, utilitarian, and multi-purpose--

By 

from Stone Mountain, Ga.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Boston Public Library Delivery Tote Bag:

I bought 6 bags and gave 3 for gifts. The kids love them for carrying books and laptops, and I enjoy them for all sorts of things--travel, laundry, groceries, books, and you name it. They are sturdy and large without being bulky and heavy--and yet can accommodate heavy items. To borrow from an old expression, you could literally put a pig(albeit a small one) in this poke and still have room to spare.

Excellent bag, different from others on the market: get one!

By 

from New York State

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Boston Public Library Delivery Tote Bag:

I have bought these for myself and friends who are scholars and book-lovers......they love it. It holds as much as one wants to carry. I think that a shoulder strap, even though not authentic to the BPL, would be good, too. This bag does the jobs other bags merely wish they could do.....get one!
