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.

Pomona Public Library As We Knew It

Hello Young Pomonans.  This is a very sad day for us at the Pomona Public Library.  Life as we knew it won't be the same in the future.  The GOOD news is that the library will stay open.  And that is VERY good news.  The downstairs of the library will be blocked off so everything will be on the upper level.  We will be open shorter hours but please remember.  WE ARE STILL HERE FOR YOU.

We will be closed from August 16th through September 3rd.  We will open on September 4th with these new hours:

Monday: 2:00pm-7:00pm.
Tuesday:  10:00am - 3:00pm
Wednesday: 2:00pm-7:00pm
Thursday: Closed
Friday: Closed
Saturday: 12:00pm-5:00pm
Sunday: Closed

I sincerely hope that you will take advantage of these hours.  People are working on bringing the library back to its former self but that might take a year or two.  Please hang in there with us.  You young people are especially precious to us and we want to help you get a good education and teach you that reading is fun.

I'm signing out for now but I will be back in September and I'll begin posting again.

Love you Young Pomonans!
