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.

Dollhouse Furniture and Dolls

Hello Young Pomonans! We seem to have a mystery on our hands. We have this dollhouse furniture and dolls that have been on display for over eighteen years that I know of. Our library director, Greg Shapton, doesn't know their story and I'm curious about them. I've assumed all these years that they belonged to Miss Webber but I don't think anyone ever told me that.

Okay, mystery solved. Grandma Sue said they were indeed Miss Webber's and she gave them to the library. There are also more down in storage. It would be great if we could put them on display, I just don't know where we would put them.

Miss Webber was the first children's librarian here at Pomona Public Library. She was instrumental in getting the children's room named after Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Come on in and check them out! (Well, not literally.)

Joke of the day: Which of Santa's reindeer has bad manners?
