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.

Even more Sociable Pictures!

Journeys to the Past helped us understand Native American culture with hands on artifacts. Several volunteers from the audience were needed.

These pictures were taken at our Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable on February 2, 2008. February 7, 2008 would have been her 141st birthday!

This third picture shows our performer, Craig Newton, with one
of our Library's loyal patrons. He is helping Craig by blowing a train whistle.
