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.

It was close! We were down to two days for reader sign-ups. We lost a whole day on Tuesday because of the earthquake. But we did it! As of 3:00pm friday August 1st, we have 1,004 readers.

This has been a fantastic summer. We have more readers and we have had more people come to our crafts and our shows. We have over 100 children reading for our reading buddies and 30 teens to listen to them read!

Next week we will have our crafts on Tuesday and our Reader's Theater performance will be Wednesday, both at 3:30pm.

Be there NOT elsewhere!

Joke of the day: Which insects tell time?
Answer: Clock-roaches! :)
