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.

Arnie the Armadillo!

Good Tuesday, young Pomonans! I'd like for you all to meet Arnie, my new Armadillo puppet! He is soooo much fun. When he gets afraid of children, he pulls himself into his shell like a turtle. Very very cool!

My good friend Pride in Garfield Park and her baby brought Arnie to me today and I have been having a blast with him! (One of my co-workers saw Arnie inside his shell and she thought he was a roly poly bug! Not!

Joke of the day: Why did the armadillo refuse to take a gun?
Answer: Because you can't arm a dillo! ;)
