With the increasing popularity of e-books and the almost omnipresent reach of the Internet and technology, libraries probably aren’t the most popular hang outs in the world. While in our opinion, libraries in themselves are the perfect place to spend an entire day, maybe it would help if more libraries were like the Cincinnati Main Library. This is the fountain located in front of the main library.

According to the description on the library’s website, t he Amelia Valerio Weinberg Memorial Fountain, affectionately known as the “book fountain,” the sculpture features water cascading over a stack of ceramic tile books, representing the free flow of information and ideas through the printed word.
