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.

Library Programs

Attention all teens! Our anti-valentine craft is today at 4:00pm. We will be making an anti valentine for you to give to your not-so-significant other.

Everyone please remember that we will be closed on Monday, February 18th, to celebrate President's day. I know you will be out of school so instead of coming to the Library, try finishing your favorite book, or go to the park, or hang out at your friend's house because our doors will be locked! You have our permission to return on Tuesday in droves and drive us crazy...

One of our programs that I would like to focus on is our Grandparents and Books. We have this every Wednesday from 3:30-4:30pm. Grandma Jean has been coming in for several years now and she does a great job of reading books to kids. She even lets you practice your reading out loud if you want to. This is an informal group, you can come and go as you need to. We pick out GREAT books and to tell you the truth it's fun just being around Grandma Jean.

Joke for the day: "Please hush," said the librarian to some noisy children. "The people around you can't read."
"Really?" asked one little girl. "Then why are they here?"
