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.

There have been some questions regarding these two pictures. The wooden statues of the Ingalls' family were made by a H. Hultquist and the date says '84.

The woman in the other picture is Eliza Jane Wilder Thayer. As you remember she was Almonzo's sister. Hope this helps!

Joke of the day: Why did the cookie not want to go to school?
Answer: Because he was feeling crummy! :)
(Thank you to Leroy Dickerson who told it at the Pilgrim Festival in Claremont yesterday.)

Thank you very much. I appreciate your checking and letting everybody know. Thanks to your photo I was able to ask my question in my blog and I got a reply there, too.
