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.

Join us in story time tomorrow (Tuesday, September 27th) to celebrate Johnny Appleseed's birthday. He was born September 26, 1774 and was a nurseryman who really liked apples. He traveled around spreading appleseeds to different areas. He is also known for his kindness to animals. What a guy!! As you can see in this picture, he wore a pot on his head as he traveled!

Joke of the day: Why did the peanut cross the road?
Answer: To get to the shell station! ;)
