Good day, young Pomonans! Is this tree awesome or what?? Our Reference department put up this Halloween tree in honor of Ray Bradbury. Our Big Read this year is Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Bradbury also wrote Halloween Tree so this is our way of honoring him at this time of year.
Pomonans of all ages made the pumpkins you see here. Come on in and get the full affect of this mural like wonder.

Good Tuesday, young Pomonans! We had a GREAT time in story time today. Everyone showed up at 12:15pm so we had one large group trick or treating. I have always said that only cute children live in Pomona and I think this proves it.
We had some slightly scary stories and trick or treated around the library.
A GREAT time was had by all!
