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.

Summer Reading Program Display

Our Summer Reading Program officially begins June 22, 2009. Our theme is "Be Creative @ Your Library." The week of June 22, you can come in and sign up for the program. Get books on your reading level while you're here and you have one week to read five hours. Beginning the week of the 29th you have your Parents sign your reading log that you have read your five hours. Then come in and get your prizes!

It's that simple. You can come in any time the library is open to get books and claim your prizes.

We have special programs every Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tuesdays at 3:30pm we will have crafts.

Wednesdays at 3:30pm we will have entertainers come in. Here is our schedule for entertainers:

July 1st: Abbit the Average. Magician and humor combined!
July 8th: Wild Wonders Animal Show
July 15: Georgette Baker, Storyteller
July 22: Richard Wade: Amazing Science
July 29: Swazzle: Puppet show
August 5: Talent show (sign ups are being taken at the children's desk)

As you can see we have a great summer lined up for you. Come in and take advantage of our free programs and free air conditioning!

We also have our story times for preschool children on Tuesdays at 12:15pm and for infants Thursdays at 12:15pm.

See you here for a GREAT summer!
