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.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss at Mendoza Elementary School!

Good Saturday, young Pomonans! We had a GREAT time at Mendoza Elementary School yesterday. We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday. His actual birthday was March 2nd, but Mendoza celebrates it on the closest Friday. I should know because I've been going every year for about four or five years. (Time goes by so fast that I've lost count!) Dr. Seuss would have been 107 years old! That's almost as old as I am... ;)

This year the Mendoza students read over 10,000 books!! Yes, that is ten thousand books!!! I am so proud of these students every year and I really appreciate the teachers and Principal, Mrs. McMullin, that promotes the love of reading. These students really get it!

They also give out reading awards. Every class has one student that has read the most books. Then every grade has one student that has read the most for their grade. These children flourish in these awards and parents are there to take pictures. I absolutely love coming here every year to see how much these students have accomplished.


Joke of the day: Why was 6 afraid of 7?
Answer: Because 7 8 9!! ;)

Happy pig day, young Pomonans! We celebrate National Pig Day every year in story time. Today we had pig stories. We read about Hamilton, Humphrey the Dancing Pig, Albion Pig and Piggies. We had a snortin' good time! We hammed it up and porked out on stories and songs! We had such a good time that we pigged out. Can you think of any more puns? I think this is the end of my tail. ;)

Joke of the day: What bear has no teeth or claws?
Answer: A gummy bear! ;)
