Boston Public Library Delivery Tote Bag

Price: $39.00
Item: ADS0565
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.

What a great bag! I love this bag! I was a bit surprised at how big it is - they must really work out at the Boston library. I filled it with books and have it sitting in my sun room for anyone to just grab a book and enjoy. June 26, 2014
The perfect bag for a library trip! I am an avid reader. I go to the library every week. Over the years I've used many different bags to haul my books home in. But this one is THE ONE! So roomy! So durable! It can handle any size book, it can carry a vast load. It's the perfect bag for my library trips. I'll be buying more as gifts! October 2, 2014
well made but large An excellently constructed bag, but I admire the librarian who could lug it when full of books. It's quite capacious. Too large for a tote, it may serve as a good storage bag. October 2, 2014
So good, I had to buy two! This is the perfect tote for book sales and library trips. People always comment on it and ask where I got it. It makes a great gift for book lovers, too. I used it when I helped my son move into college this year but it never made the return trip. He's using it now to tote laundry. Durable and sturdy, really well-made. Will be getting more to give as gifts this holiday season! September 18, 2014
Boston Public Library Delivery Tote Bag The tote bag is surprisingly spacious. The tote material is well suited for wear and durability. The tote sits near my husband's closet full of dry clean clothing that doubles as a transport bag to the cleaners. The tote is well appreciated. September 7, 2014
Great bag Love this unique bag. Wish the handles were long enough to put over a shoulder. June 5, 2014
BEST BAG!!!! We purchased this bag while in Boston last year...we use it to collect our dry cleaning. We love it! February 5, 2014
Holds a lot I am not yet certain what all I will use this sturdy, deep bag for, but I know I'll find more than one use for it. January 4, 2014
Sturdy bag holds library books with ease We are heavy library users and this sturdy bag holds all of our books and cds with ease -- plus they look all neat and tidy in the bag. Got this for my wife and she loved it! It is larger that I thought which was great for our heavy usage. December 30, 2013
I Love It! This Boston Public Library Tote Bag is so much fun! We have it standing in our foyer with books showing, just like the photo on the web site. I'll change the books once in a while, but, in the meantime it certainly stimulates conversation with our guests and gives us great pleasure to see it there, reminding us that that there's nothing like a good book in hand and nothing like the beautiful Boston Public Library!
