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.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from our friend Abbit the Average!

Happy green day, young Pomonans! Our friend, Abbit the Average, is one of my favorite children's entertainers. We have him most every year and no one ever tires of his sense of humor or the fun he has with children.

I am fortunate to be on his e-mail list and look forward to holidays when he sends out his fun holiday cheer. Here is his St. Patrick's day good cheer:

Advice for the day: Don't iron your shamrocks or you'll be pressing your luck.

Joke of the day: Why do so many people live in Ireland?
Answer: Because the capital is always Dublin. ;)

Thank you Jeff Abbit, our own Abbit the Average for always sending humor into our lives!
