Just one word, but it is a common one, at least!

Yes. “où” = “where”.
The accent helps to avoid confusion with “ou” = “or”.

Context could do the same thing, couldn't it?
Où est le livre?
Ou est le livre?

Would anyone wonder what was meant in the second sentence? Or is the book?

Oh well. I always wondered why the French took a character out of some words but then inserted a mark to remind us that the character is missing:
Old French: fenestre
New French: fenêtre
