Lexington Public Library Ceiling Clock

(#1108) from Kentucky Life Program 1108 (2005)

A look at the workings of the 40-foot-wide clock in the ceiling of the Lexington Public Library’s main branch. A gift of philanthropist Lucille Caudill Little, the clock marks time with a circle of 60 horse figures that light up in succession and is accompanied by a four-story Foucault pendulum as well as a frieze by local artist Adalin Wichman.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
