Who We Are

The Friends of the Manteno Public Library is very active in fundraising advocacy, volunteerism, public awareness campaigns, and literacy programs. All of which has made them very instrumental in providing the library with monies to replace outdated equipment, host unique programs and partner with local community organizations.
