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.

Author Visit!

Author Jay B. Winderman will come to Pomona Public Library on May 14, 2008 at 3:00pm. This is a picture of one of his books, "Thunder in the Backyard." Mr. Winderman loves tortoises and shares his knowledge of them in his children's books. He resides in Claremont and has agreed to come here May 14th. Be sure to mark your calendars now! I hear tell he will bring at least one of his tortoises!
