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.

The summer reading program is off to a wonderful start. We have been very busy and we appreciate your patience as you wait to sign your children up for the reading program.

These pictures were taken today as we had an impromtu storytime in the back of the room. It looked so cute I couln't resist taking pictures. They were good little listeners as well and could answer questions asked of them about the story.

As of 2:30pm this afternoon, we have signed up 316 children and 42 teens for a total of 358 readers! All this in 3 1/2 days! This week we signed up children for the reading program and began the Reading Buddies program (see previous posts.) Next week we will be handing out prizes for those of you who have read their five hours. Also next week we will begin the weekly crafts on Tuesdays at 3:30pm and we will begin our weekly special programs on Wednesdays at 3:30pm. Our first program on July 2nd is David Cousin, one of our favorite jugglers. He is very good so you won't want to miss this.

Joke of the day: What did the hat say to the scarf?
Answer: You hang around while I go on a head. :)
