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 Party 2008

We had soooo much fun at our end of the Summer Reading Program Party! Our good friend Abbit the Average came and entertained us very well. He always gets belly laughs from the kids and I never get tired of that! (He gets belly laughs from the staff as well!) He is one of our most favorite entertainers and no matter how often we see him we enjoy him more and more.

We owe a big gratitude to the Friends of the Pomona Public Library for funding our programs. They are so very generous to us. One of the pictures here represents a small fraction of them. Thank you Friends!

Please keep coming into the library. Even though our program is over we are still here for you. Plus we miss seeing you when you don't come in. :)

Joke of the day: Who can write a children's book and give a great massage at the same time?
Answer: Dr. Masseuse. :)
