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.

Memorial Day 2010

Good holiday, young Pomonans! This weekend is an important holiday for the United States. It must be because you all get out of school! Please take time this weekend to remember all of the fallen soldiers who gave their lives so that we can live in peace. A life is a high price to pay and we need to remember all that they have done for us.

My Mom's kid brother was a soldier in World War II. His name was Francis O. Moore and he was flying a plane over Germany and was shot down. I never met him but I was born on his birthday. I love that! He has always been special to me even though I never met him. Do any of you have family members who were killed in a war?

Remember them this weekend and for all the brave soldiers who never came home to their families.

Have a great weekend young Pomonans!
