Ada Lovelace’s 200th Birthday party at Glasgow Women’s Library 10 Dec 2015

To celebrate the 200th birthday of Ada Lovelace, the inventor of computer programming, the Glasgow Women’s Library is delighted to invite you to this event at which we will the launch of a brand new library section of books about women in science engineering technology and maths (STEM).

The guest of honour will be Professor Tracey Howe, of the Glasgow City of Science project, who will formally open the new section.

The new section is dedicated to Ada Lovelace and Victoria Drummond, a Scot who became the first female ship’s engineer. The section has been sponsored by Dr Nina Baker and the books are the combined donations of her own collection and that of Dr Rosa Michaelson. We believe this collection to be nationally significant and contains many rare items not otherwise available in the UK.
