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.

Dewey Readmore Books

Good morning young Pomonans! Our favorite cat is back in the library! Dewey Readmore Books lived at the Spencer Public library in Iowa for many years and just last year an adult book came out about his story. The author, Vicki Myron, was the Library Director at Spencer P. L. and was the one to find this beautiful kitten put into the book drop on a very cold winter day. He survived and the town of Spencer, Iowa adopted this kitten.

I was so moved by this story that I flew to Spencer Iowa last year to meet the author and have the Library's copy of her book (as well as my own) signed. It was a wonderful experience and I wrote of my experiences on this blog in late October 2008.

Now this month Vicki has published: "There's a Cat In the Library" by Vicki Myron with Bret Witter; Little, Brown & co. 2009.

This is the first of several anticipated Children's book about Dewey. The illustrations on this book is lovely and the cartoon depicted Dewey is just adorable. The cover will definitely attract young readers to Dewey's special story. I will let you know when our copy comes in.

Remember, our Homework Assistance Center opens October 6th from 4:00-6:00pm

Joke of the day: Attention young Pomonans!! Will you please go read Dewey's new book?
Young Pomonans: Dewey have to???
(Ms. Lois: Yes! You'll love it!!!)
