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.

Mark Your Calendars - February 6, 2010 1-3pm

Our Laura Ingalls Wilder Gingerbread Sociable is coming in two weeks! This is our 44th annual sociable that we have been having! In six years we will have done this every year for 50 years!

This year we are having Judith Helton perform. She dresses like Laura would have dressed and she tells Laura's stories. Judith knew Clara Webber who was the first Children's librarian here at the Pomona Public Library. Ms. Webber was a fan of Laura's and corresponded with her and is the one responsible for naming our children's section The Laura Ingalls Wilder Room.

Also some good news is that our own Pomona Bakery will be making the Gingerbread this year. If you haven't been there yet their address is: 200 E. First St. Pomona, CA (909) 629-7680.

Come on in to the Sociable and step back in time for a really good time!

See you here!

Joke of the day: Why was the broom late?
Answer: It over-swept! ;)
