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.

Summer Reading Program and Reading Buddies 2010

It's almost here, young Pomonans! These are pictures of our prizes for the Summer Reading Program this year. The top two pictures are prizes for the children and the bottom two are pictures of the prizes for teens. As usual we have great prizes! Come on in and see the display and then Tuesday come to sign up for the Reading Program and for the Reading Buddies Program. Our Children's Reading Program is for children ages 0-12 and teens ages 13-17. The children's theme is: Make a Splash @ your library and the teens theme is: Make Waves @ your library. So come in and sign up!

As you remember, we keep track of the hours you read. We give you a reading log that easily tracks your time. After reading five hours, bring it in and we give you some prizes. We give prizes out for five, ten, fifteen, and twenty hours. For teens, we give prizes up to thirty hours.

Read at your reading level what ever you like such as adventure, mysteries, non-fiction, scary stories, etc.

If elementary students would like to practice reading with a college age or high school student, you can sign up for the Reading Buddy Program. And teens, if you would like to help a child read, you can sign up to be a mentor.

We have terrific programs headed our way that I will post about tomorrow.

See you here! PPL is the place to be!!!!

We are AWESOME! (And modest...) ;)

Joke of the day: When do truck drivers stop to eat?
