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.

Car Over the Edge at PPL Parking Lot

Don't let this happen to you! I really don't know what happened but soon the buzz all over the library was about this car. (You wouldn't believe how fast things travel around here!) I went to look out the window and sure enough I saw this car and a police officer. Soon the tow truck came and I ran for my camera.

Many of you would be surprised at what happens in a public library. It really is not the stereotypical boring place that libraries have a reputation for. Our former Library Director, Hal Watson, used to say: "I could write a book about the things that happened in a public library but no one would believe me." It's very true.

Come in sometime if you would like some true stories. But be prepared to stay awhile. Sometimes non-fiction is better that fiction. :)

Joke of the day: What sometimes defies the largest of automobiles?
Answer: Gravity. :)
