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.

43rd Annual Laura Ingalls Wilder Gingerbread Sociable

Two weeks from today is our 43rd Annual Laura Ingalls Wilder Gingerbread Sociable. We have been celebrating her birthday for many years now! This year since the sociable is actually on her birthday, we are having birthday cake! (And it's not going to be ginger flavored either. At least I hope not...)

Our entertainers this year are Ken Frawley and Christie Lewis who will be telling cowboy/cowgirl stories and songs and also they will be doing trick rope for us! Ken and Christie belong to an organization called Dream Shapers that include various types of programs for children.

Grandma Sue will be leading the craft. You all will be making Conestoga Wagons (out of paper.) This craft is out of my league so I'm afraid I won't be much help. I can help you glue in you like. :) Grandma Sue is the craft expert and I appreciate her expertise.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Pomona Public Library. This is a wonderful group of people who provide money and support to the Library. They are amazing.

Here is the information:
