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.

Dream Big — Read!

Good Saturday young Pomonans!!  It's been awhile since I've blogged because google and blogger have changed things and it's taken me longer than I care to admit to catch up!

Our Summer Reading Program starts Monday June 4, 2012!
That's a week from Monday!  Our theme for this year is:

Dream Big: Read!  It's really simple.  All you do is come in and sign up.  We give you a reading log to help you track the hours you read.  When you have read for five hours, come in and show us your tracker that one of your parents have signed.  Then we give you a prize!  Is that great or what??  We give out prizes for every 5 hours read up to 20 hours!

Reading Buddies also begins June 4, 2012.  To participate in this program you must come in to the library to sign up.  Fill out an application and we will put you with either a high school or college student to practice reading for 30 minutes.  The hours for this program are:  Monday and Tuesday 1-4pm. Wednesday 1-3pm.  Come in anytime during those hours and you can practice your reading with an older student.

Teens, we have a program for you!  The theme is: Own the Night.  Read and record your five hours on your reading log to earn special prizes and entries in our Grand Prize Drawing!  You also can participate in our Reading Buddies program.  Sign up at the Children's desk to help a young child read!

Adults, we haven't forgotten you.  The Adult Reading Program also begins June 4, 2012.  Please go to or call our Reference Desk (909) 620-2043 ext. 2701 for details.

See you here at the Pomona Public Library June 4 - July 25, 2012 for all of our Summer Reading Programs for all ages!

Joke of the day:  What is smaller than a talking cat?
Answer: A spelling bee!  ;)
