Darwin bobbleheads – too bad this isn’t a joke


In celebration of the bicentennial of Charles Darwin?s Birthday, 1809 ? 2009, and the sesquicentennial publication of his seminal work, On Origin of the Species, The University of Hawaii at Manoa Library is sponsoring a fundraiser featuring Charles Darwin Bobbleheads.

Through March 31st, the UH Library is accepting pre-sales orders of the commemorative Charles Darwin Bobblehead. The bobblehead fundraiser will support Library Enrichment events such as exhibits in the Bridge Gallery, lectures, readings, and workshops for the campus community.

These ?little Darwins? come complete with Darwin’s birth and death dates inscribed on the base (you’ll never forget Darwin Day again!). They weigh about 550g (1 lb, 3 ounces for those who cannot abide the metric system), and they stand approximately 19 cm (a.k.a., 7.5 inches) tall. They are made of polyresin.
Every Darwin fan and every biology lab needs one of these — what better way to assure the success of your experiments (and thought processes) than to have Charles Darwin overseeing your creative endeavors? It is the perfect gift for the scientist who has everything!

Advance order your Charles Darwin Bobblehead for $25/each at the Business Window (956-7203) on the first floor of Hamilton Library, Monday ? Saturday 8:30 a.m.?4:30 p.m.; Sunday 12:00 p.m. -7:00 p.m. For more information, please contact Teri Skillman, 956-8688 or skillman@hawaii.edu.
