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.

Space Bug Craft!

It has been very busy and very exciting here at the Pomona Public Libray! Many of you have come in to sign up for the Summer Reading Program and to the crafts and to our programs. Everything here is free and the air conditioning is wonderful! It's the best deal in town. As of now, 677 children have signed up and 112 teens have signed up, for a total of 789 readers! We are hoping to top 1,000 this year so come in and let that happen.

Today's picture is a picture of the craft that Grandma Sue will be doing tomorrow. It's a space bug! Cute isn't it? Here is a list of activities this week:
