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.

Mel and Sydney

Howdy, young Pomonans! I have found yet another bird webcam! This one is of two barn owls named Mel and Sydney. They currently roost in a man-made birdhouse in Oceanside, California. The really amazing thing is that Sydney's eggs are about to hatch any day now! Go have a peek at http://sportsmansparadiseonline.com/Oceanside_Barn_Owls.html. Next time you visit, stop by the X598.9 section to learn more about barn owls. Also, if you haven't checked in on Phoebe the hummingbird's nest, you better get a move on- her chicks are nearing time to leave the nest!

Q: How do you know that owls are cleverer than chickens?
A: Have you ever heard of Kentucky-fried owl? :D
