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.

Wonders of Wildlife

What a great time we had yesterday with our friends Wonders of Wildlife! Cheryl and her Mom (sorry I didn't ask for her name) gave us a wonderful show with wildlife and bugs. Yes, bugs. Lots and lots of bugs. We also saw a baby fox, pot bellied pig, and everything else you see in these pictures. We even had a snail race! Alexia's snail won and she got the gold medal. Hooray Alexia! The good news is that they didn't ask one of us to eat a mealworm. I was a little disappointed as I was hoping to see Grandma Sue hurl...

Next week our Reader's Theater begins rehearsal. I'm calling everyone that signed up this morning because our rehearsals begin Tuesday the 22nd at 2:30pm. Remember that everyone who signed up promised to be at every rehearsal. We only have five rehearsals and every minute is vital. We need to be familiar with the material so that our audience has fun. (Remember that our theme this year is "Catch the Reading Bug", so we will have some rather discusting reading material.) What fun!

Our Reader's Theater schedual is this:

Tuesday July 22: 2:30-3:30pm
Wednesday July 23: 2:30-3:30pm

Tuesday July 29: 2:30-3:30pm
Wednesday July 30: 2:30-3:30pm

Tuesday August 5: 2:30-3:30pm
Wednesday August 6: 2:30-3:30pm
Performance: 3:30-4:00pm
Cast party: 4:00-4:30pm

Thanks again to Wonders of Wildlife for a really great show and I'll see you at rehearsals next week!

Joke of the day: Why did the dogcatcher catch so many large dogs?
Answer: Because he was getting paid by the pound! :)
