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.

Scottsbluff, Nebraska to Home at the Wonderful Pomona Public Library

Hello young Pomonans! I had a very good vacation again this year. I went to Scottsbluff/Gering, Nebraska to visit relatives. My great grandparents settled in this area. Then my Grandfather had a dairy farm which my Mom grew up on. Now I have an Uncle and cousins still there and it was so great to see them. My mom and my Uncle Don are twins and they celebrated their 89 1/2 birthday together! Now that's old! :)

As always it is wonderful to get back to our Pomona Public Library. We will start up business as usual starting the 15th of September.

Our hours for the next two weeks are: Tuesday-Thursday: 10:00am-6:00pm
Friday-Saturday: 11:30am-5:30pm
Sunday-Monday: Closed

Starting the 14th of September: Tuesday-Thursday: 11:30am-7:30pm
Friday-Saturday: 11:30am-5:30pm
Sunday-Monday: Closed

It will be good to see you again!! By the way, we will be closed on your first day of school: September 8th in observation of Labor Day.

See you soon!

Joke of the day: Why was the piano locked out of its house?
Answer: It lost its keys! ;)

I'm from Nebraska, too! North Platte.

Hey, Pride! North Platte is really close to Gering/Scottsbluff! Do you still have relatives there?

The weather was so nice and cool. If I knew I would be coming back to all these fires I might have stayed put. ;)
