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.

The Big Read 2008 Is Here!

Once again the City of Pomona is hosting a big read. This year the book is: To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. Since this isn't a
children's book, we will have weekly story times and crafts every Thursday afternoon in October from 3:00-4:00pm. We will do themes based on the book. This Thursday we will be doing stories about African Americans in the 1930's. We will be doing stories such as Goin' Some place Special
by Patricia Mckissack and Daddy's Gift, by Margaree King Mitchell. Grandma Sue will be doing the Crafts.

Here is our schedule for the week:

Monday September 29: 12:00-2:00pm Elf

Tuesday September 30: 12:15pm Preschool story time
3:00pm After school story time
4:00-6:00pm Homework Center

Wednesday October 1: 3:30-4:30 Grandparents and Books

Thursday October 2: 12:15pm Infant Story time
3:00-4:00pm The Big Read Story time and craft.
4:00-6:00pm Homework Center

Come on in and join us in these fun activities. We are also here for you in finding information for your reports.

Joke of the day: Why did the silly guest take a bowl of salsa with him when he went into the pool?
Answer: His host said, "Please take a dip in my pool"! :)
