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.

I bought these bags for my niece and nephew for Christmas. They enjoy going to book stores with their kids. These bags are of great function for when my niece and nephew go shopping and when the kids get tired, they can just be lugged home! These bags make great gifts for all!

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.

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!

Im ordering another one, and maybe two more!!!

By 

from Fairmont West Virginia

Comments about Levenger Boston Public Library Delivery Tote Bag:

I have been looking for a nice sized sturdy bag, as I am always carrying things into work. We have a tight budget for office supplies, and Im always buying things I need and carrying them into the office. This bag is perfect !!! It has a nice size and is very well made and sturdy. I can carry a lot in it. Ive never had a tote bag that was so durable. You'll notice that the first time you take it out of the shipping box. Im giving one as a gift to a friend of mine who carries her laundry out.... and I think I need another one for the house.... at these prices you can afford to have a few.!! You will never regret purchasing this product. I plan to use it for years to come. Do yourself a favor and buy one..... or three!!

Very sturdy, good seams. LARGE. I was able to get 7 full grocery bags inside so it only took one trip to get everything from the garage to the kitchen.
