Each session will include playtime and a snack, plus children will receive a free copy of “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type” to take home. Parents, grandparents and other caregivers are invited to enjoy coffee and snacks downstairs at the day center for women while the story is being read upstairs.

There is a limit of 30 children so parents must register in advance by calling Neighbor to Neighbor at 785/262-4215 or emailing

This year’s “Reading with Friends” is funded by a grant from the Dane G. Hansen Fund, through the Community Foundation for Cloud County, and a gift from the Cloud County Attorney’s Diversion Fund, with continuing support from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia, who operate Neighbor to Neighbor.

“We hope to help foster the love of reading in the children who take part,” said Sister Pat McLennon, echoing the program’s motto: “A love of books begins with just one.”
