See Something We Don't Have?

If you have a Waukegan Library card, we may be able to order an item from another library and have it shipped over for you to check out!  Click here to search for an item within our library network, or contact the Reference Desk at 847-62-2041 x238. 

Items typically take a few days to a week to arrive, and we will notify you by phone or email once the item is ready for pickup.
