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.

A Successful Sociable!

A big thank you to all of you who came to our 42nd annual sociable. We had great fun! Craig Newton did a great job singing his way through the prairie. (We don't really know what "Twist and Shout" had to do with Laura, but we didn't care!) His knowledge of all of his instruments were impressive as was the fact that he played them so well.

Journeys to the Past recreated Native American history and had many artifacts for us to see. She showed us how Native Americans wove baskets and had beautiful ones on display. We all learned a lot and appreciated this added perspective.

Grandma Sue took over the conference room with her craft and I saw many children going home with a one room schoolhouse. The Friends of the Library provided refreshments and a good time was had by all.

This week we will have our children's valentine craft. It is Wednesday, February 6th at 3:00pm.
Next week will be our teen craft February 13th at 4:00pm.

One of our resident teens took pictures at the Sociable and we will post them when we are able. Since as of today no one has stopped by to help me with uploading pictures, I will leave that task to Ms. Nissa or Grandma Sue. :)

Joke for the day: Why did the one-eyed monster close down his school?
Answer: He only had one pupil.
