4 Totes of Fun for Every Library Lover

4 Totes of Fun for Every Library Lover

February is all about love… love for the Library, that is, as it’s National Library Lovers Month! Celebrate your love (or obsession—no judgement) for free knowledge and open access to books with these must-haves for every libraryholic. 

Let’s unpack some literary loot!

1. For the New York Public Library Lover


The Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, the flagship branch of NYPL, is a Beaux-Arts beauty that you can now carry with you! Fill your building tote with other NYPL-exclusive goodies, like our Lion Logo Magnet, perfect for the bibliophile’s fridge. Get comfortable in warm Lion socks, and relax with some meditative coloring with Coloring in the Lions, filled with stunning illustrations of antique book covers, vintage photographs, and more.

2. For the Vintage Library Lover

Vintage LL

Modern technology is great but there’s something nostalgic about card catalog drawers, due-by stamps, and the smell of old books! Perfect for the classic library lover, this library card tote is designed like a retro check-out card—you can even fill it with a notecard set that’s designed like an old-school card catalog.

Personalize your own collection for circulation with our Personal Library Kit, complete with return-date cards and a stamp with ink pad. Finally, wear your vintage library with a Stamp T-shirt from Out of Print, which includes a bonus: each purchase of a shirt will send one book to a community in need.

3. For the Writing Library Lover

Writing LL

Not all readers write, but all writers certainly read! Jane Austen knew this when she wrote "There is no enjoyment like reading," the featured quote on this handy, travel-friendly Bookstack Journal (we can forgive Austen for giving that line to the haughty Miss Bingley).

Pack your journal in a nostalgic Composition Notebook Tote, and add George Orwell’s politically-charged essay, Why I Write. It’s a short read, delving into Orwell’s life and what inspired him to put pen to paper, including his "four great motives for writing." And, as writers must always have their wits and tools about them, save space with a 9-in-1 Tool Pen, which includes: a Soft-Roll ballpoint pen with ink refill, touch screen stylus, Phillips and flathead screwdrivers, three different scale functions, and a level.

Never be unprepared for a writing project again!

4. For the Young Library Lover

Young LL

For young (or young at heart) library lovers, check out this tote featuring artwork from The Very Hungry Caterpillar. You can bring it with you to one of the best activities of the children’s department—storytime! These Storytime socks add excitement and interaction to classic fairy tales. If you prefer, have your own storytime with Library Lion, about a friendly lion that decides to visit his neighborhood library branch. Finally, kids can dress for storytime with a How We Roll t-shirt, a book-inspired tee featuring a fun library book cart.
