Walk, talk, read and play together with our new Picture Paths in local parks!
Picture Paths are displays installed on walking paths that feature a children’s story book, educational information and suggested activities to do while on your walk. They are meant to be interactive and enjoyed by children with their family and friends.
When you walk the path in one direction, you can read a picture book and do fun activities. An activity might involve hopping like a frog to the next sign, counting the number of flowers on a page or looking around your surroundings for something blue.
When you walk the path in the other direction, there is educational information about trees and animals that may live nearby. There are also additional activities when walking this direction.
The book and educational facts on the Picture Path will change each month.
AJ Jolly Park
Our first Picture Path is installed at AJ Jolly Park and ready to be enjoyed by our community. The book featured in August is In the Small, Small Pond.

Please Note: There is a fee to enter AJ Jolly Park. The fee is $8 per car. However, you can get into the park for free on Thursday mornings in August to enjoy the Picture Path!
This Picture Path is made possible by a partnership between the library, the Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service and the Campbell County Parks & Recreation Department. There was also additional funding for this path from a Summertime Kids Grant from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation.
Coming Soon to Newport
An additional Picture Path is coming soon! We are adding a Picture Path to the new dog park behind our Newport Branch. Unfortunately, we do not have an exact open date just yet. We will be sure to update this page and post on social media once the Picture Path is open.
