Check out Manteno Public Library’s new Teen Advisory Group (TAG)!
It meets once a month on Tuesdays from 4:00pm-5:00pm.
We get together to talk about books we are reading, volunteer in the library, write book reviews, and do art projects. Bring a friend and join us!
Manteno Public Library offers a volunteer opportunity for teens entering 6th grade to 12th grade to help with our Summer Reading program. Volunteers help with distributing prizes, program set-up and clean-up, playing games with children, prepping crafts and other related activities.
This is a great way to get your community service hours for school, church, NHS, etc. You can find the Summer Reading Volunteer Application here or at the Circulation Desk.
Any questions should be directed to Jen Regan, Youth Services Coordinator at anJlZ2FuQG1hbnRlbm9saWJyYXJ5Lm5ldA== or 815-468-3323.
The Kiss of Deception is a great book to get lost in. Throughout the course of the book you are taken to a world that is not like our own. The main character, Princess Lia, flees to a distant village to get out of an arranged marriage. She disguises herself as a barmaid and begins working at the local inn. Once there, she meets two unlikely characters: one is the prince she was supposed to marry and the other is an assassin that’s been sent to kill her. Will the men realize who the barmaid is or will Lia escape her future as a Queen and live?
