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.

Talk Like a Pirate Day a Success!

Flags were created today. It's funny how different each one is. We show a sample of our craft and everyone comes up with their own twist. Two of my favorites had red hearts where the eyes were supposed to be and it looked like the skeleton had blood shot eyes!

Our homework center opened yesterday and I was surprised how crowded it was. It was great to see kids having fun doing their homework. They usually get one on one help and they enjoy the attention as well. As I have said this before, it really is a win win situation. College students enjoy helping children and the children enjoy the help.

Remember: the homework center is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4-6pm.

Joke of the day: Who invented a plane that couldn't fly?
Answer: The Wrong Brothers! :)
