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.

New Library Hours

The Pomona Public Library will be changing their hours beginning June 30, 2008. For several months, the City of Pomona has been taking a close look at the budget for the coming fiscal year. For the lIbrary's part, our contribution to the "Pomona effort" are the new hours. The new hours are:

Monday - Thursday: 12:00pm-8:30pm
Friday - Saturday: 12:00pm - 5:30pm

For those of you who come to story time you'll realize that the Tuesday 10:15am and the Thursday 10:00am hours will have to change. The Tuesday story time is considering 12:15pm and 3:00pm. The hard part is that everyone's child eats lunch and takes naps at different times. 12:15pm may be during a lunch/nap and 3:00pm may be a time when parents must pick up older children from school. Please take this week to think about what would be best for you and we will make a decision before June 30th.

Change is hard and it's sad we lose the morning hours but we will do our best to make this work. We appreciate your loyalty to the library and we will work out the best possible solution.

Please remember that we need your feedback. Keep in touch!

Oh...i didn't know we had to have a password. Obviously this is my first time coming to this blog. I had no idea it existed.
Anyway, I'm glad I came upon it because I was really interested in the storytime for preschoolers. I think I would find the 12:15 more beneficial and convenient.
