This fountain, affectionately known as the “book fountain,” stands outside of the Cincinnati Main Library.
According to the library, “the sculpture features water cascading over a stack of ceramic tile books, representing the free flow of information and ideas through the printed word.”
Designed by Michael Frasca and dedicated in 1990, the Amelia Valerio Weinberg Memorial Fountain “was made possible by a bequest from Mrs. Weinberg.”
