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 Big Read, Week 5

This week's cart was ours. Our theme was "radio and music in the 1930's". Ms. Nissa and Grandma Sue had all the ideas. I helped cut and paste to the board. My talents do not lie in the crafting area!

We have no intentions that our cart will win. Reference definitely outdid themselves and our hats are off to them! However ours does have music. Under the cart we have an mp3 player playing actual radio songs from the 1930's. We even have a copy of "War of the Worlds" playing. Now that's cool!

Come in and see all of our book carts. All of the library staff did a great job in thinking "all things 1930." The big read and reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" has been a great experience!

Joke of the day: What did the little vampire say when they handed it the prize?
Answer: "Fang you very much!"
