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.

Dog Sledding in 96 Degree Weather a Success at PPL

Hello young Pomonans! As you can see we had a great time with Adventure Quest Institute as they presented a program on dog sledding. Yes, it really was 96 degrees here in Pomona but we didn't even think of the heat as we listened to the program.

The little person that is dressed in the parka and boots is really a Pomona resident. The over sized clothing makes her look like a space person or something! She is showing some of the things that sledders have to wear to keep warm on the snow. You can see that the face is totally covered except for the eyes.

Mayor Rothman and his son Jason came to get in all of the fun. A good time was had by all and we even learned things in the process. That's how I like to learn!

We also had bingo playing in the conference room. It was well attended and many received prizes.

If you still haven't read our Big Read book, "The Call of the Wild" by Jack London, please come in to the library to check one out.

Joke of the day: Where do dogs buy their furniture?
Answer: At flea markets. ;)
