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.

The Last Call for the Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable!

It's finally coming, young Pomonans! Our Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable is this Saturday, February 7, 2009. We will start at 1:00pm with Cowboy Ken who will tell cowboy/cowgirl stories and songs and do trick roping as well! At 2:00pm Cowgirl Christy will do her roping tricks and stories and songs. It will be a really fun time for the whole family. 3:00-4:00pm Grandma Sue will be doing crafts. You'll be making these Conestoga Wagons (like the one pictured) and of course we will have birthday cake and punch.

Hooray to the Friends of the Pomona Public Library who sponsor this event. They are a wonderful group of people who help us keep this tradition alive.

This is the last "official" notice of the Sociable. I have tomorrow off and I may or may not send one last shout out from home.

See you Saturday! We'll have fun, fun, fun!

Joke of the day: No joke! Be at the Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable! Saturday, February 7, 2009 from 1:00pm-4:00pm!
