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.

Greetings young Pomonans! These pictures were taken to remember our big read this year. We, as a community, read Jack London's "Call of the Wild." City wide we held community events
book talks, crafts, and special programs. Our library staff got "Call of the Wild" t-shirts and we wore them proudly.

The first picture was a nice picture but the second one shows us as we really are! We have great fun as staff and we enjoy working with all of you. I hope you read and enjoyed the book.

Remember this week we are open today and tomorrow, with an early closing tomorrow at 6pm.
We are also open Saturday from 11:30-5:30pm.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Joke of the day: Why did Pilgrims' pants always fall down?
Answer: Because they wore their belt buckle on their hat! ;)
