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.

Good Saturday, young Pomonans! We had a GREAT time at the 46th Annual Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable. Six students from the Ranch Hills Elementary 4th grade class performed a Reader's Theater of one of Laura's Stories. Then we had this GREAT band called the Whirled Peas Band. They were fantastic! They sang and danced and played instruments that the Ingalls would have used. For instance a banjo, fiddle, guitar and flute! They even taught us a dance!

Thank you to the Whirled Peas Band for bringing Laura's life to us in Pomona, California!

Joke of the day: What's the most slippery nation in the world?
