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.

Reader's Theater

Readers Theater Group
Originally uploaded by bill kralovec
For the past several years, we have had a Reader's Theater during our Summer Reading Program. Let me explain what it is:

Our Reader's Theater is a group of children and teens who read together as a group. As in this picture, you will be reading from a script, nothing is memorized. We read together, split into groups one and two, and have solo readers. It's like standing in a chorus or choir but instead of singing, we read. Actually this year since our theme is "Catch the Reading Bug", we will be singing several songs: "There Ain't No Bugs on Me", "The Ants Go Marching...", to name a few. It's a lot of fun!

If you are interested in signing up for Reader's Theater, go to the children's reference desk located in the children's room. However, if you do sign up, you MUST be present at the five rehearsals. If you are not present, you lose the parts that have been given to you. We only have five one hour rehearsals and each minute is vital! Also, you must be 8 years old or older to participate.

Here is the schedule for our Reader's Theater:

July 22: Rehearse 2:30 - 3:30pm
July 23: Rehearse 2:30 - 3:30pm

July 29: Rehearse 2:30 - 3:30pm
July 30: Rehearse 2:30 - 3:30pm

August 5: Rehearse 2:30 - 3:30pm
August 6: Rehearse 2:30 - 3:30pm

August 6: Performance 3:30 - 4:00pm
August 6: Cast party 4:00 - 4:30pm

Reader's Theater is a lot of fun and it is a commitment. So commit yourself to read this summer and have some fun as well!

Joke of the day: Why was the insect such a bad baseball player?
Answer: It kept hitting fly-balls. :)
