I’m very happy to announce that I’m now a Library Ambassador for Dayton Metro Library! As an author, avid reader and parent, I love a library. Even if you’re not local to the Dayton area, I think you’ll enjoy seeing what I have planned for the collaboration. The partnership is primarily through Instagram, so be sure to follow me there to see!
The book tote pictured is an LL Bean medium Boat & Tote, which I think I ordered in the nick of time?! The exact one I have appears to be in stock, but a lot of the totes are now showing ‘limited quantities,’ so grab one if you want it! My tote is a medium, long-handle tote in Lawn Green with Mid-Blue stitching for the monogram. It was the closest LL Bean could match the Dayton Metro Library’s color story.
Boat & Totes were featured over the weekend in Vogue and The New York Times due to the viral ‘ironic boat and tote’ trend. My initials are of course not DML, but I doubt the local public library’s acronym qualifies as irony. At any rate, this may be the closest I ever get to a Gen Z ironic trend. I think my indestructible Bean camp mocs are older than Gen Z, but I digress.
Anyhow, I’m looking forward to sharing more library-inspired content with you and to partnering with an amazing community organization!
