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.

What a great time with Wild Wonders! They brought a Hairy Amadillo, kinkajoo, Kukaberra, a fox and an alligator!!!! It was quite exciting when they pulled the alligator out of his container. There was a big intake of breath and wow!! Every child who wanted to got to touch the alligator. I must admit I kept my distance.

More tomorrow!
