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.

Pomona Christmas Parade 2009

Good Tuesday, young Pomonans! The parade was terrific on Saturday! It was wet but that sure didn't dampen any spirits. I only saw about 3/4's of the parade because I needed to get to work but what I saw I loved.

I especially appreciated the Village Academy kids being the grand marshalls. They really made a difference in their own lives as well as ours. Imagine being responsible for the President coming to town! Well done Village Academy!

I wanted to post these pictures on Saturday but we were having trouble with the computers. So you have them now! Be sure to check out Metro Pomona and Pomona Arts Colonist for more pictures.

Our schedule this week is:

Tuesday: 11:45am Preschool story time
4-6pm Homework help center

Wednesday: 3:30pm Grandparents and books
4-6pm Homework help center

Thursday: 11:45am Infant story time
4:00pm Holiday craft
4-6pm Homework help center

Joke of the day: Why is lightning so hard to catch?
Answer: Because it bolts! ;)
