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.

We had a great time these past three weeks.  This group got together and read different scripts and made puppets of their characters.  It was fun just being around these kids.  We laughed and encouraged each other on their projects.  The top picture you see really nice kids.  The second picture is their playful side!!  Did I mention we had a lot of fun??

This is the last program at the Pomona Public Library in the foreseeable future.  On August 15, 2012 the City will close it's only library.  Sometime after Labor Day we will open again with a much smaller staff.  

This Summer Reading Program has been especially fun.  Hopefully in the years to come we can start our programming up again.

Joke of the day:   Why did Cinderella get kicked off the baseball team?
Answer:  She ran away from the ball!  ;)
