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 Homework Assistance Center

Our homework center is getting ready to open! This was a huge success last Spring and Cal Poly Pomona is making it happen again. We got rave reviews from both children and their parents about what a great help this center gives our children.

Here in these pictures are staff from Cal Poly: Charlene, Heather, Joel, Sandra, and little Jezebel.

Mark this date on your calendars: September 16, 2008. The homework center is a free service to children from grades 1 through 6. They will be open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 4:00pm until 6:00pm. I have seen them stay late when a child's project was due the next day. Staffing the room are volunteers from Cal Poly University here in Pomona. Help spread the word so even more kids can take advantage of the center.

Story times begin this coming week! Here is our schedule:

Tuesday Sept. 9: 12:15 Preschool story time
3:00pm After school story time

Wednesday Sept. 10: 3:30-4:30pm Grandparents and Books with Grandma Jean.

Thursday Sept. 11: 12:15pm Infant story time

It's Pomona day at the Los Angeles County Fair!! Be sure and pay attention to the parade at 5:00pm. The library will be represented!!

Joke of the day: What did the meteorite say when asked to give a quote?
Answer: "No Comet." :)
