Northern’s Top Dog Barks for Books


mission-readNIU’s mascot Mission visited Founders Memorial Library in July to pose for a READ poster, which is now hanging in the leisure reading area on the third floor of the library.

Mission found several interesting titles on the shelves and posed for photos in the Regional History Center and University Archives.

Come in to see Mission’s poster and find your own good reading material!
