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.

To Kill a Mockingbird, the Big Read Is Coming!

Everyone in our community is asked to join together to read, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. This is such a great book and we are able to share it with children by taking themes of the book and doing stories and crafts that go with that theme.

This Thursday, October 2nd from 3:00-4:00pm we will be doing just that. The theme for Thursday is "African Americans in the 1930's" Yesterday I posted two of the stories we will do. Tomorrow I will post a picture of the craft. The craft we (Grandma Sue) decided to do was a wind chime. Wind chimes were placed around the porch and families would spend summer evenings on their porches listening to wind chimes in the background. Life was at a slower pace than we are used to today. Today we are so busy going to school and soccer practice and to this play date and that play date. Maybe we can take these wind chimes and sit around enjoying each other for a change. So come in and make a wind chime and chill. :)

Joke of the day: What do you call a bee born in May?
Answer: A Maybe. :)
