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.

Come to the End of the Summer Reading Program Party With Craig Newton!

Hello young Pomonans! These are pictures of Craig Newton when he was here two years ago. He will be giving us a show tomorrow afternoon (Aug. 18th) at 3:30pm. We will be outside again under some trees near the courthouse. We still don't have air conditioning (sigh) so it really is cooler outside under the shade trees.

Craig does a great show. He plays many, many instruments and talks about where they come from. It is a lively show and he chooses kids in the audience to help him play the tamborine, kazoos, etc. So come on out for a stompin' good time!

Joke of the day: What is the most musical bone?
Answer: The trom-bone! ;)
