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.

A Wonderful Time With Michael McCarty

We had a great time with Michael McCarty today. He told Anansi stories from West Africa. Anansi is a trickster spider who everyone gets annoyed with!

Michael told stories and then he asked questions about his stories. He gave a book and a bookmark to the child who answered the question correctly. I think about ten of you won books. What a great giveaway!

We will definitely have him back.

Joke of the day: What type of animal needs oil?
Answer: A mouse because it squeaks!
