Speaking of computers...

...Siri Woodget's magnificent exhibit Augusta Ada Byron King – A Fairy in Your Corner is not to be missed.

Ada Byron King is recognized as the first programmer. She saw further into the capabilities of the "Analytical Engine" than its designer, Charles Babbage.

At the exhibit, ongoing through October 25th, you will learn a great deal about this amazing woman. I urge you to go to the Jack & Elaine Whitehorn Memorial Library, a suitably stately and beautiful place, to learn and be amazed.
