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.

Christmas Books

It's Christmas young Pomonans! These two titles are ones that I really like right now. Claude the Dog gives a wonderful message in very few words. Claude's owner (a little boy) gives him his Christmas presents. He got a warm blanket, a warm bed, and a toy. One of Claude's friends comes along who doesn't have a home (his name is Bummer) :) Claude ends up giving all of his presents to Bummer because he feels that he has a wonderful home and that is the best present of all. Wouldn't the world be a better place if we all were like Claude?

The other book is my favorite of all the "Night Before Christmas" books. This one is illustrated by Jan Brett and the pictures are gorgeous! When you look at them you feel like you're right there in the middle of it all.

Come on in and check these out. There are TONS of Christmas books with multiple copies of the favorites. Yes, we have multiple copies of "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas."

Joke of the day: What did the bald man say when he got a comb for Christmas?
Answer: Thanks, I'll never part with it! :)
