Rachel Ott's Reading Wish
The Calgary Public Library has 18 locations across the city, which we use to save you from shipping costs and to ensure that we can offer our products at a great price. Simply select your community library from the drop-down menu upon check out.
If you are purchasing a product from outside of Calgary, or would prefer to have it shipped to your home, shipping rates apply and will be built in at checkout. Shipping rates are based on a box 6" x 6" x 6" and sent through Canada Post. For more information or any concern over shipping costs please contact email@example.com.
We want you to love any item purchased through librarystore.ca. If you don’t and would like to receive a refund, please return your items to the Calgary Public Library Foundation office located at 429 8th Ave SE.
All refunds will be issued through librarystore.ca immediately upon return.
The Foundation office is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. To access through the back door entrance, please use the buzzer. Any products purchased from your community library can be returned there, however all refunds will be issued by the Foundation and may take up to 10 business days to complete in this scenario.
For further questions please contact us directly at 403-221-2002 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
After initially struggling to read, Rachel quickly became the little girl who would read for hours past her bedtime under the sheets with a flashlight to avoid the wrath of her mother, who couldn’t understand why her daughter was so tired every day at school. She has always been passionate about learning, reading, and writing, and pursued multiple degrees in English Literature, Professional Communications, and Education. She loves the Little Free Library initiative and has been giving her own books away to family, friends, and acquaintances for years.
On her 30th birthday, she wanted to use what influence she has to bring that love of reading to others, and encouraged everyone to donate to the Calgary Public Library. This year, for her 31 st birthday, she is once again asking for donations to the safe haven that has provided her with hundreds of books and stories, and kept her sanity intact throughout her life. She has loved many libraries in her life, and continues to be grateful for the support they provide to the Calgary community.
Rachel Ott’s Reading Wish is that all people enjoy the freedom and possibilities found within the local library, and to encourage others to love to learn and read even when it’s difficult. She currently works as an educator and spends her free time bringing home piles of books from various libraries. In her defense, she should not ever be believed when she says she’s just going to the library for a minute to get one book.
Please consider donating to the library using this page! You will receive a tax receipt and will make Rachel very happy.
