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.

Next week (May 12 - 18) is children's book week! We are celebrating on Wednesday May 14th with an author visit! Jay B. Winderman has written three books: "Thunder in the Desert", "Thunder on the Reservation", and "Thunder in the Backyard". Thunder is a California Desert Tortoise and these three books are animal fantasy books for middle-grade readers. They are written in such a way that the readers will come to understand, respect, and admire these wonderful creatures.

I believe Mr. Winderman will bring one of his tortoises to share with you. Come on in on Wednesday and ask our guest author some questions!

So come out of your shell and into the library:
