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.

Wild Wonders Come to PPL

Good Monday, young Pomonans! This is a picture of Wild Wonders when they came last year. As you can see she is holding a baby alligator! Those of you who wanted to touch it could. She put a muzzle over it's mouth and those of you who were brave enough petted it. I was not among the brave. But many of you were and I was proud of you.

Remember we will be outside near the courthouse on the lawn. Bring blankets to sit on to make yourselves more comfortable. I even saw some of you bring bowls of fruit to help take off the edge. Bravo! It really is cooler out under the trees than it is inside the library.

For those of you who signed up for our Puppet Readers Theater we will have our first rehearsal tomorrow at 2:3pm. You will be assigned parts and we will start to talk about what your puppet should look like.

See you here!!!

Joke of the day: What do you call a deer with no eyes?
Answer: I have no eye deer! ;)
