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.

New books!!

OK! All right, already! It came in finally. For those of you who have been waiting: Twilight by Stephanie Meyer is in. I hope you like it because just reading the cover jacket scares the socks off of me. Why you like to be scared to death is beyond me, I find life itself frightening...

We have two copies, one being on the hold shelf, and the one I'm looking at now is up for grabs. Usually when a book is popular I grab a copy and read it before I let it go, but I'll pass on this one. :)

We have many more new books in for teens so make sure you stop by the YA section and look for yourself. We are also beefing up the non-fiction YA section so check that out while you're at it. It may come in handy for school reports and it will save you a trip to the adult room.

Some of the new non-fiction books are on these subjects:

Energy Alternatives
Forensic Science
The Birth of Mathematics
The Death Penalty
Biomedical Ethics
Illegal Immigration

... just to name a few. So come on in and check it out and come by and say hey to us as well. Our desk is in the children's room but we keep our eye out for teens as well. We know how special you are and we love seeing all of the great teens in Pomona. Keep up the good work!

Hi Lois,
Glad to see your cold is better and your back among the living. Take care of yourself and don't forget to dodge those sneezes from the kids.
