Rachel Ott's Reading Wish

0 star rating Write a review



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.
