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.

Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable, 1975

Good Wednesday young Pomonans! We are counting down to our annual Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable. This picture is from the year 1975 when Melissa Sue Anderson visited the Pomona Public Library to sign autographs. For those of you who weren't born yet, Melissa Sue Anderson played the part of Mary Ingalls in the television version of Little House On the Prairie. It was quite exciting at the time to have a television personality visit the Pomona Public Library. It still is!
