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.

The 45th Annual Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable Was a Success!

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.
