Good holiday young Pomonans! I like this picture. Is it President Lincoln chopping down a cherry tree??
Anyway, have a great day of rest or homework. I would tell you to come in and see us, but we are closed. Bummer.
See you tomorrow!
To my preschool Moms: My hours changed for tomorrow. Ms. Nissa will be doing preschool storytime and I will be doing Infant story time at 1:00pm. (They want me to work until 7:00pm, so I can't come in until 1:00pm.)
Joke of the day: How do you make a bandstand?
Answer: Take their chairs away! ;)

Oh yes, young Pomonans! Tomorrow is our Library Director Greg Shapton's Birthday. We celebrated it today and we had a great time! Normally Greg isn't shy, so I have no idea why he kept putting cards in front of his face. At least I got him good once before my battery died. ;)
He got many great cards about cats and about being old! (Good thing he has a good sense of humor!)
Joke of the day: Why can't your nose be 12 inches long?
Answer: Because then it would be a foot! ;)
This morning it was threatening to rain. I called my mom and she said to me "Don't fall." I just laughed and said "yeah mom". I'm not laughing now!
In story time this morning I was doing my rendition of "The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly". I use my Grandma Lu puppet to act out the song. She literally eats all of the animals and when the spider "wiggles and jiggles and tickles inside her", I get really close to the kids and shake the puppet. I moved backwards after that and promptly fell off of a step, right onto my backside!!! How embarrassing!
But then you just have to laugh at yourself and move on.
So now young Pomonans, why am I telling you this story? It is this:
ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER!!!!
Joke of the day: What did I do for my story time kids today?
Answer: I fell for them! ;)

Anyway, I'm very sorry to miss story time. I hate being sick on Tuesdays. It's not fair!
I'll stop whining now. Believe me I could go on and on but it isn't pretty and I'm sure you have better things to do.
Have yourselves a GREAT day and I'll see you tomorrow!
Joke of the day: Why don't we make fun of colds?
Answer: Because they're nothing to sneeze at! ;)

Good day young Pomonans!! We had a GREAT time at our Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable today. We estimated that 125 people came to hear Craig Newton and to make crafts and hear Laura's stories. A huge thank you to the Friends of the Pomona Public Library and to David Allen for including us in his Friday's column.
The Friends of the Pomona Public Library stepped in and helped make this year's Sociable happen. Hurray for the Friends!!! We love you! :)
Every child got to make a gingerbread boy or girl to decorate. They got to hear stories of Laura and got to have some tasty refreshments. It really was a fun day.
Joke of the day: How do you fix a broken Pizza?
Answer: With tomato paste.
