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.

Another Impromtu Story time!

I walked past our fiction section today and noticed another impromtu story time. They looked like they were having some fun and they let me take their picture. I love seeing these mini read-a-louds. What a great thing to come into the library and cool off with a good story.

I wish everyone could see what I see here at PPL. I see good kids and teens having fun together and helping each other through reading. The kids love the attention from the teens and the teens have fun helping the kids. They learn resposibility by learning to show up on time. I'm also seeing loyalty. Several of the teens we can count on like clockwork to show up on time every day. It's a great place to be and to work. Hooray PPL!
