i harbor dreams of one day becoming a librarian. until then, i content myself with lazy visits to the local library, emptying and refilling my tote with glee. this pretty baby would be a great companion for a romp through the dewey decimal system. she's 12" x 14" which means that there is ample room for everything from fiction to non, periodicals to photocopies. pockets on the front mean that writing utensils are always well organized and easy to find. and there is a special treat! a 5" x 6" wallet to hold your library card and reading list that can nestle in the front pocket or reside around your wrist.
