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.

Happy Holidays All of Pomona Young and Old!

It has been a great holiday season here at the Pomona Public Library. Absolute wonderful people live here in Pomona and I am privileged to be part of it all. Your cards and well wishes are from the heart and I love that!

This is a picture of a card given to me today by some of my former kids from preschool story time. They are 16 and 18 now!! How did that happen? The oldest could be a stand up comedian. He had me laughing so hard I cried. Twice!!

Another former preschooler was here today and he is learning how to read himself. How cool is that? That is what it is all about, folks. Watching children read to themselves when you used to read to them -- priceless.

Have a very, very happy time this holiday season. We will be open next week Monday through Wednesday. On Wednesday we will close at 6:00pm

Last holiday joke: Mom can I have a dog for Christmas?
Answer: No. You'll have turkey like everyone else. :)
