Certified therapy dog Juno visits the Rib Lake Public Library each week for Juno’s Book Club. Miss Juno listens to children read to her. See more pictures of Juno’s Book Club on the Rib Lake Public Library Facebook Page.
Juno is a certified therapy dog through Therapy Dogs International (TDI). Juno visits the Rib Lake Public Library each Wednesday to listen to children grades 1-5 read. Children collect punches on a punch card for each time they read to Juno. After ten punches the children earn a free book, a picture with Juno, a post on Facebook (with permission), and a certificate of accomplishment.
Owners Kerri and Todd Olson brought Juno (pictured L) and family dog Yukon (R) to the Rib Lake Public Library to present a program on skijoring. Todd brought his handmade sled to show how he uses it while skijoring with Juno and Yukon through the snow.
