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.

International Talk Like a Pirate Day / Weekly Activities

Arr..ahoy maties! This coming Friday, September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Since we have more staff and we are busier on Wednesday rather than Friday, we are celebrating it on Wednesday September 17th at 3:00pm. We are making these pirate flags. Cool! While guys kind of like this day more than girls, remember that they have to address us as "me beauty." That has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? :) Come in and have fun!

This is our schedule this week:

Monday 9/15/08

12:00 - 2:00pm Come play at Elf. Elf stands for Early Learning Families and we have our story hour room open for infants and toddlers to play. We have toys that children this age love to play with and fun music playing in the background. So far today we have had 13 kids and their care givers who say they had a great time. Come in and check it out!
