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.

Summer Reading Program Sign-Ups Begin Monday

One World, Many Stories by ya_hpl

Good Tuesday, Young Pomonans! Our Summer Reading Program sign-ups begin Monday, June 20, 2011 from 12:00pm-7:00pm. Anytime the library is open next week you can come in and sign up, pick out your books and begin reading!!

If you cannot read yet, a parent or sibling can read to you and you get a prize after reading five books, then 10, then 15, and then 20.

If you CAN read, you count the hours you have read. We give out prizes after 5, 10, 15, 20 hours of reading.

If you are a teen, you read for raffle tickets. After you read five books, you get one raffle ticket. After 10 books, you get two raffle tickets. I won't say what we are raffling off, but you are going to WANT it!!!

If you need more information, please come in to the library and ask. That is what we are here for!!

Joke of the day: What do jokes and pencils have in common?
Answer: They're no good without a point! ;)
