What is O-Town Reads?
O-Town Reads is a community-wide program designed to bring people together through the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book.
Through the help of generous sponsors, a free copy of the book can be picked up at the library.
2020 O-Town Reads Selection
The Ottawa Library is pleased to announce the 2020’s O-Town Reads book, “No Other Home” by Overland Park native, Matt Besler. A member of Kansas City’s pro soccer team, Sporting KC, Besler’s book is a memoir-like collection of inspirational stories, moments, and advice.
Thank you for sponsoring. Without your support, this wouldn’t be possible.
