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.

Summer Reading Program

Oh my goodness! We were sooooo busy today. It was the first day to sign up for our Summer Reading Program. We also began the Reading Buddies (see previous post). At the end of the day when all is said and done, we signed up 98 children and 11 teens for a grand total of 109 readers! That is a very good beginning for what we know to be a great summer.

If you haven't signed up yet, come in and get started! This week just for signing up you get a bookmark and pencil with the "Catch the Reading Bug" theme on them. The teens get a bookmark and pencil with the "Metamorophosis @ Your Library theme. Read your five hours this week and next week come into claim your prizes. You may only read five hours per week so your library experience will go longer into the summer.

It's all happening HERE at YOUR library. See you soon! (I'll be the one looking a bit frazzled! :)

Joke of the day: Is it okay to eat french fries with your fingers?
Answer: No, you should save your fingers for dessert! :)
