Reading with Friends returns as a Facebook live event for January

Reading with Friends at Neighbor to Neighbor will return in January as a Facebook Live event at 10 a.m. Jan. 8.

January’s book will be “A Loud Winter’s Nap” written and illustrated by Katy Hudson. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of ‘Tortoise’ who doesn’t like change and just wants to find a quiet place to nap — but his friends have other ideas.

Instead of coming to Neighbor to Neighbor as usual, just go to the Neighbor to Neighbor Facebook page to tune in for the story with guest reader Lindsay Metcalf. Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 8. The video will stay on the Facebook page after the reading for anyone to enjoy later in case they can’t make it online at 10 a.m.

Sister Missy Ljungdahl, director of Neighbor to Neighbor, said the first 25 children to pre-register will be able to pick up a copy of the book ahead of time (one per family).

“Lindsay is a reader that they won’t want to miss,” Sister Missy said. “We will have books and snacks available to pick up starting Jan. 6, in case the children would like to follow along in their own book as Lindsay reads.”

The story times for children 3 to 5 years old are on the second Fridays of the month and all begin at 10 a.m. To register, call Neighbor to Neighbor at 785/262-4215 or email

The monthly program has been a part of Neighbor to Neighbor’s regular offerings since September 2012. Neighbor to Neighbor is located at 103 E. 6th St. in downtown Concordia.
