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.

Pomona Public Library at the Los Angeles County Fair

Greetings young Pomonans! Today is the City of Pomona day at the Los Angeles County Fair. The Library Staff has ridden in this parade for the last 6 years. Actually, the first year we marched and pushed our book carts! It was a hoot! We did routines with them and even when we just twirled them around, the crowd cheered us on. The problem was that pushing them around the fair grounds was really hard on them and some wheels fell off! Since then our Library Director hasn't let us use them. :( The next couple of years we just walked the parade and then about three years ago we started to ride in the back of a City of Pomona truck. It is great fun each year. A lot of the times we ride in front of or behind the Pomona police. Pictured here are members of the Claremont police riding at the L.A. County Fair.

Unfortunately, since we have fewer employees at the Library, I must stay behind this year and work the Children' s desk. So come on in young Pomonans! I'm here for you. :)

Joke of the day: What was the spider charged with by the bug police?
Answer: Assault with a lethal webbin! ;)
