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.

Homework Assistance Center Halloween Party

Wow! Did we ever have a party yesterday afternoon. Our Homework Assistance Center went all out to have a great party for everyone. Daniel, our Americorps Promise Fellow from Cal Poly Pomona, did an outstanding job putting this together. The Homework Center worked with kids on their homework from 4-5pm and then had this great party out on the patio from 5-6pm. A GREAT time was had by all. The volunteers who worked with Daniel worked hard at setting up, blowing up balloons, decorating, etc.

Daniel is really good at encouraging businesses to donate what they can to the center and he had some really great decorations that were donated from the community. He found these two big awesome pinatas that were full to the brim. One child was hitting the pinata so hard that the rest of us gave him plenty of space!

The party was a huge success and the credit goes to Daniel and his volunteers. We at the library are so lucky to have such talented students volunteer their time here. College students are busy anyway and to have them give us so much of their time is really great.

If you have not been to our Homework Assistance Center yet, please come in and experience it for yourselves. You'll meet some great college students and get your homework done at the same time.

Our Homework Assistance Center hours are: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4:00-6:00pm. See you here!

Joke of the day: What do witches use in their hair?
Answer: Scare-spray. ;)
