Stop by the Penfield Public Library to check out our latest special poster exhibition Picturing Women Inventors, which is on display for several months! It examines the creativity of nineteen highly accomplished American women inventors representing astronauts, computer pioneers, business women, athletes, engineers, and even teenagers.
This exhibit is organized by the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) in collaboration with the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation and the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and is sponsored by the Lyda Hill Philanthropies IF/THEN Initiative and Ericsson.
