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.

Ahhhhhh!! Give students a break and they come back with a vengeance! We have been very busy Tuesday and Wednesday. I have a feeling reports are due and the last minute is at hand. We are here for you! Our homework center is here for you!

I know it seems like time is short and you can't possibly get everything done that you need to, but you can. You are also not by yourself, you have thousands of students going through what you are going through. What, that doesn't help? OK, then. Come on in and see for yourself. Let us help you get the best possible grades you can.

And, to give you that prize, we will begin the Summer Reading Program June 23rd. We will be giving away free books more than we ever have before.

Our reading buddies will begin that day as well. Reading buddies is where we pair an elementary student with a high school or college student to practice your reading. It is a wonderful program!

That's just a teaser. We will be posting more information in the coming weeks. Hang in there!

Joke of the day: Do you want to hear the story of the broken pencil?
Answer: No, thanks. I'm sure it has no point. :)
