The Lexington Public Library is home to the biggest ceiling clock in the world. Though it is armed with Roman numbers, the clock is entirely digital. It has all the features of the traditional clock; chiming on the hour, lights and so on. However, all of these operations are controlled digitally. The gaps between two successive numbers has been filled up by the artistic impressions of running horses, paying a tribute to the racing tradition of Lexington. The library is also home to one of the Foucault Pendulums of the world. This device is used to understand the rotation of the earth around the sun. The pendulum is one of the rare devices in the world that were devised way before the earth’s movement was established. It is one of the major attractions in the library.
