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.

How are you all taking the heat, young Pomonans? Now that your back in school it's kind of hard to concentrate in this heat. Remember to drink PLENTY of water. Or be like this dog and go sit in a cold pool of water!

We are open the same hours as last year, so nothing has changed in that regard. Here are our hours:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: 12:00pm to 7:00pm.

Saturday: 12:00pm to 5:00pm

Closed Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Joke of the day: What has teeth but won't bite?

PPL Summer Reading Program Party

What a great time we had at our party! As you can see we had some interesting animals in the children's room! We had a baby alligator, a hegehog, a tarantula, a boa constrictor, a ferret, and a baby wallaby. These animals came from all over the world. I can't remember now which animal came from where, except for the baby wallaby. He/she was from Australia.

Our attendance wasn't what it has been in the past so next year we will work on reaching out and seeing about growing again.

We are still open the same hours: Monday-Wednesday 12:00pm-7:00pm. Closed Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Open 12:00pm-5:00pm Saturday.

Our programs will begin again the week of September 12, 2011.

Joke of the day: What do you get when you cross a camera and an alligator?
Answer: A snapshot! ;)

Good Tuesday, young Pomonans! Pacific Animals will be here tomorrow, August 10th from 3:30-4:30pm. This picture was taken last year. Remember our air conditioner was out? Yea, I don't much want to remember that, but we did have our programs outside. This year our air is working fabulous and we will have this program inside. This is the baby alligator they brought last year and I'm sure they will be bringing either this one or another one like it. You don't want to miss this!!
