You may suggest an eBook purchase on the library’s website or by speaking with a librarian. Only patrons with Waukegan Public Library cards may download eBooks. If the title you want is checked out, you may place a hold on it, just like a physical library book. Ebooks cannot be renewed, but may be checked out again as long as another patron doesn’t have a hold on the title.
