Welcome to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Children's Room!

Ms. Clara Webber was the first children's librarian of Pomona Public Library. A long time correspondent with Mrs. Laura Ingalls Wilder, she was instrumental in having the Children's Room named in honor of Mrs. Wilder on May 25, 1950. Today, we house the original hand written manuscript for the novel Little Town on the Prairie. Every February, we host the Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable in honor of Mrs. Wilder's February 7th birthday.

Good joke books at PPL

Hey Pomona kids: Do you like jokes? We have great joke books here at PPL (Pomona Public Library). Try these:

Knock Knock! (Who's there?)
Peas. (Peas who?)
Peas to meet you!

And that's how we feel about Pomona's kids and teens. "Peas" come in and meet us. We're fun people who love kids and teens!

-What do people do in clock factories?
Answer: They make faces all day!

We all love a good school joke:
-What animal gets in trouble when it takes a test?
Answer: The Cheetah!

And how about a nice tongue twister?
-The doctoring doctor doctors the doctor
the way the doctoring doctor
wants to doctor the doctor
Not the way the doctored doctor
wants to be doctored.

One of our resident teens advises this: Say "toy boat" many, many times. toyboattoyboattoyboattoyboattoyboat.............. very,very fast!
