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.
