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.

Celebrate! National Library Week

April 13-15, 2008 is National Library Week. Wherever you live, take time to go into your local Public Library. Get reacquainted with it and check out a book that looks good. Of course you should do this more than once a year but we live in a busy world.

Chase's Calendar of Events explains this event:

"A national observance sponsored by the American Library Association. Celebrates libraries and librarians, the pleasures and importance of reading and invites library use and support."

So come on in and celebrate with us.

Tuesday story time: 10:15am
Wednesday Grandparents and Books 3:30pm
Thursday infant story time 10:00am

Wacky Library Books:

"I Can Do Anything" by Will Power
"How to Get Along With Your Sister" by Sharon Sharealike
"Jewelry Collecting" by Pearl Nicholas
"The Unfinished Story" by Cliff Hanger
"You Don't Say" by Ida Clare
"Oops, I Did It Again" by Miss Take
"Embarrassed in the Shower" by Kurt N. Fell

See you soon! By the way, Ms. Nissa calls me a "blogalarian". It has a nice ring to it!
