In celebration of the bicentennial of Charles Darwin’s Birthday and the sesquicentennial publication of On Origin of the Species, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Library has purchased commemorative Charles Darwin Bobbleheads to sell in the Library Shop.

These “little Darwins” come complete with Darwin's dates inscribed on the base.  Made of polyresin, the bobbleheads weigh about 1 pound, 3 ounces and stand approximately 7.5 inches tall.

Every Darwin fan and every biology lab needs  a Little Darwin!  What better way to assure the success of your thought processes and experiments than to have Charles Darwin overseeing your creative endeavors?  It is the perfect gift for the scientist who has everything!

The sale of the Darwin bobbleheads supports Library enrichment events such as exhibits in the Bridge Gallery, lectures, readings, and workshops for the campus community.  There are a limited number of Darwins left.  If you missed out last year, now is your last chance to get Charles Darwin Bobblehead ($25/each) at the Business Window (956-7203) on the first floor of Hamilton Library.
