On April 12, 2018 The State Library of Ohio, Ohioana Library Association, and Ohio Center for the Book announced selections for Choose to Read Ohio (CTRO) 2019 and 2020. Announced biennially, the booklist contains 20 titles representative for all ages that highlight the diverse literature published by Ohio authors. CTRO promotes reading across Ohio by encouraging Ohioans of all ages to read and share books by authors native to, residing in, or associated with the Buckeye State.
The CTRO 2019 & 2020 booklist was developed by an advisory council representing schools, libraries, and literary organizations, with input from over 55 additional teachers, librarians, and other book lovers. Click here to learn more about CTRO.
