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.

Good afternoon, young Pomonans. I'm blogging from home today because the library is closed. It is so strange not to be going into work today. I have worked at our wonderful library for almost 19 years and the only time we have closed on Mondays was when there was a holiday. I guess I better get used to it!

The Summer Reading Program is going great. We are a little lower in numbers so far this year, so if you haven't signed up do so soon!

Last Wednesday my favorite children's entertainer opened our programing with his magic/comedy act. Yes, Abbit the Average was in wonderful form as he wowed us with his side splitting funny routine. I took pictures but I didn't have my camera on the right setting so they came out a little dark. I'll post them tomorrow.

This coming Wednesday, July 8th, we are having an animal show. Wonders of Wildlife will come and bring some animals that we don't usually see everyday. Animal programs are very popular so you don't want to miss this. The program will be from 3:30-4:30pm in our beautiful Laura Ingalls Wilder room.

Here is our schedule for this week;

Tuesday: 10:15am Preschool story time
12:00-4:00pm Reading Buddies
3:30-4:30pm Crafts

Wednesday: 3:30-4:30pm Program: Wonders of Wildlife

Thursday: 10:15 Infant Story time
12:00-4:00pm Reading Buddies

That's it! The Summer Reading Program is my favorite time of year. We get to see all of you several times a week. Don't miss out on the fun - we'll see you here!

Joke of the day: What is the most dangerous city?
