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.

Saying Goodbye to Grandma Jean

Dear Young Pomonans,

Our favorite Grandma Jean Roman must resign as our resident Grandma. She has had heath problems and cannot come in to read anymore.

Grandma Jean has spent the last 20 years reading on Wednesday afternoons to our children. She began with other grandparents in a program we started called Grandparents and Books. We had a group of about 15 readers who would rotate reading. Then after about five years only two grandparents were left: Grandma Flo and Grandma Jean. For the last three or four years it has just been Grandma Jean.

Grandma Jean will be missed by all of us. Because of her our Grandparents and Books program lasted twenty years.

Much love to Grandma Jean!
