Results from our bag poll are in! Librarians carry a variety of bags — solids, prints, and witty sayings. No matter what they look like, one thing is consistent: librarians carry a lot of stuff.

Product Manager, Corporate, Austin, TX

I got this Zendesk bag at a conference and carry it to work every day. 


I am information manager at The University of Manchester Careers Service. UK. I like this bag because its waterproof, will fit A4 files and  has lots of pockets and zip up compartments so I can find stuff and hoard loads of pens.

I am a YA librarian, for an urban public library in TX. I need a bag that I can carry on the bus (and easily maneuver my metro card out of); something that can carry my breakfast, my program planning notebook, all the books I’m checking in and out of the library any given day, and my cardigan I wear to survive the intense AC. Also I wanna look good, as image is everything with teens. So I wear this galaxy back pack daily.

I’m the Library Director of a very small public library in Pennsylvania and I carry this bag with me to work everyday, and I LOVE IT!

Library bag poll

  • What bag do you carry to work? Leave a picture of your work bag in comments with your title, type of library, and location!
  • I (Rebecca) will start: my position requires I travel a lot between campuses and I'm usually on my bike, so I need a bag that is comfortable to ride with, can carry a lot of stuff, and is stylish. A grown-up backpack is a natural choice for me.
