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.

Book of the Week: "Please Bury Me In the Library"

Good day, young Pomonans! I came across a book today that I wanted to share with you. I'm weeding through the 800's. (That's library talk that means I'm going through the poetry section and removing books that are terribly worn or that never get checked out.) The illustrations are really cute and the poetry is great. Let me share some with you:

Lewis, J. Patrick, Please Bury Me In the Library.
Oralando, Florida: Harcourt, Inc. 2005

Illustrated by Kyle M. Stone

Well, I came across this most unfortunate paragraph:

All rights reserved. No part of the publication may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means...

I'm going to check into this further.

Anyway, come in and check out this book! The call # is: X811Lewis, J.

Joke of the day: P.E. teacher: Why did you kick that ball straight at the school computer?
Child: Because you told me to put it in the net. ;)
