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.

Welcome Spring and Peter Rabbit

Fabulous Tuesday young Pomonans! Because it is officially spring and because of the beautiful day we have here in Southern California, I decided to bring out my Aunt Bonnie's collection of Peter Rabbit memorabilia. I had forgotten how pretty it all is. While my Aunt can no longer appreciate it, she gave them to me to display for all you great Pomonans. There are several pieces that are mine but most of the work and care for this collection was hers.

In 1993, it was 100 years since Peter Rabbit had been published. As I recall the Montclair Plaza had artists come out and you could have your pieces personalized. Some of these pieces have Bonnie's name and some have mine. Now that Bonnie is near the end of her life, I can all the more appreciate these pieces and share them with all of you.

Come in and see them. The pictures don't do them justice.

Joke of the day: What would you get if you crossed a rabbit with an amoeba?
Answer: A bunny that can multiply and divide itself! :)
