Reading with Friends will be a Facebook live event for March

March 10, 2021 by

Reading with Friends at Neighbor to Neighbor will be a Facebook Live event at 10 a.m. March 19.

March’s book will be “The Welcome Wagon” written and illustrated by Cori Doerrfeld. This beautifully illustrated book tells a sweet story all about meeting new people and making new friends.

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 Sister Philonise Keithley at . Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, March 19. 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).

“We will have books to pick up starting Monday, March 15, at Neighbor to Neighbor, so that the children can follow along in their own book as Sister Philonise reads,” Sister Missy said.

Sister Missy encourages everyone who is preregistered to pick up their books between 9 a.m. Monday, March 15, and 4 p.m. Thursday, March 18, at Neighbor to Neighbor.

The story times for children 3 to 5 years old are normally on the second Fridays of the month and all begin at 10 a.m. This month’s event is a week later to accommodate spring break. 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.
