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.

OK. So maybe we aren't closing the street for these events. But that doesn't mean they aren't special!

May 14th: 3:00pm Please mark your calendars for this. We are having an author visit. This means that the person who wrote a children's book will be here to talk with you. He will even sign books! I will give you the name of the author and book closer to the time of the event. Just mark your calendars now! Hint: He wrote a book on tortoises!

May 21st: 3:00pm Monthly craft. Grandma Sue will be leading this craft. We will be making flower mobiles. If you don't know what this is, come and find out!

Every Tuesday 10:15am: Preschool and toddler story time (ages 2-5). This is every Tuesday from now through August 12th.

Every Wednesday in May: 10:00am Toddler story time (ages 18-36 months).

That's it! Next month the Reading Buddies starts as well as the summer reading program. It's all good stuff at the library!

Joke of the day: Why did the children wear their swimsuits to school?.
Answer: They rode in a car pool! :)
