If you know me you know of my love of everything books. I adore books. Always have. Always will. Imagine my excitement when I discovered that America’s Oldest Independently Owned Bookstore was just a couple blocks away from my hotel and I had a totally free morning.
I set off to walk to Otto Bookstore located at 107 W 4th St. in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1841, the Otto Bookstore has been a part of the Williamsport community for over 200 years. It is also one of the five oldest bookstores in the United States which is no small feat. I was thrilled to find it so easy to walk to and the staff was welcoming and agreed to allow me to take some pictures.
What a wonderful morning I had. I replaced the bridal party gifts in my suitcase with books and went home happy. Thanks to Otto Bookstore for a wonderful adventure and for some good reading.

What a great morning for you! I like that the bookstore is just crammed…with books!
What a true treasure that is for Williansport, PA. I know that was a great plus to your visit.
I do love bookstores – and libraries, too! Growing up, my Dad always insisted that we visit the library in any town we were visiting. I think my sister inherited his love of books because she became a librarian. I just love taking my time to just see the amazing variety of books. What a great way to spend the day.
I can be happily lost in bookstores. One of my favorite ways to spend a day.
Oh my, oh my, oh MY! This might be worthy of a trip just for it’s own sake!
What a perfect find for you!!
I love this place and wish I could stop in right now. Enjoy your purchases. I am late commenting as I have not had access to my emails for ten days. Very frustrating.
I missed you! Hope you have things all worked out not. This place is amazing and I could have spent twice as much time looking around. A book lovers dream!
It’s almost sorted out but now I have 2200 emails to deal with. Pulling my hair out.
