Where in the world is Charles Darwin?

It might be Darwin’s birthday today, but he is certainly nowhere to be found at my local library.  I went in and asked the reference desk to find me some interesting children’s books on the subject of evolution.  The librarian scanned the shelf for anything even tangentially related to Darwin’s theory.  She basically came up empty.

It shouldn’t be any surprise that religious books were in abundance.  Where are America’s priorities?

If you are looking for a book about Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, you may have to skip your public library and get them here.

Happy Birthday Chuck D!

  1. Funny you should mention that! In honor of Darwin Day, I searched my local library for children’s books on Darwin, and was happy to find several. But clearly not all public libraries are in such good shape. Perhaps they’ll take a donation!

  2. Gettin’ in totally late on this one, but, better yet, buy the books and donate ’em to the library. ;D
