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.

Come Learn About Laura Ingalls Wilder and Pioneer Life!

Attention young Pomonans! As you know, our Children's Room is named after Laura Ingalls Wilder who wrote children's books about her childhood growing up in the mid to late 1800's. She traveled by wagon train, met indians, and lived the life of a pioneer.

This coming Tuesday, October 27th we are going to learn more about pioneer life and we will be making these paper dolls of a pioneer family. The time will be 4:00pm here in the Laura Ingalls Wilder Room.

We celebrate Laura's birthday every February with a Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable. It is always the first Saturday of February from 1:00-3:00pm. This next year our event will take place on February 6th. Save the date.

In October, November and December we will have a special pioneer program to get us ready for the Sociable. In preperation, please read the "Little House Books", if you haven't already done so. The first book in the series is "Little House In the Big Woods."

See you here!

Joke of the day: Why did the tree travel to his hometown?
Answer: He was searching for his roots. ;)
