Here is a picture of the oldest portion of the library itself (built in the 1600s I think). It now houses the computers(all very busy when I stopped by)
Not only does Darwin get a statue, but he also appears on two symbols of the local economy. He is on the 10 pound note (scientists? On money?!?!? That’s dangerous thinking!!!) And he is also the namesake of the local mall!!! Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a copy of Origin of Species on sale in the mall either (probably a good thing, I have a few copies already).
