Christi Tenczar, Breezy Point, brought her certified therapy dog, Maverick, to the Pequot Lakes Library several times this summer, where Tenczar read to children after preschool story time on Wednesdays.

Maverick is certified with Therapy Dogs International. Tenczar takes him to visit area hospice patients, nursing home residents and students at Eagle View and Pine River-Backus elementary schools.

She said Maverick missed the students during the summer, so they were invited to read with children at the Pequot Lakes Library.
