eBooks from OverDrive and Freading
Your Waukegan Public Library card is your ticket to a library that’s open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Library’s collection of best-selling and classic eBooks is growing every month, so you can recommend an eBook for purchase or sign up to be notified of the newest additions to our catalog.

You need an active Waukegan Public Library card to download eBooks using OverDrive or Freading. If you live in Waukegan and don’t yet have a library card, get one! If you live outside Waukegan, we recommend these sites for downloading free eBooks.
To get started, just choose the slideshow for the device on which you’ll be reading your eBook.
Freading is a fun new way to download eBooks in EPUB or PDF format. You can use tokens to download eBooks but once you use up your tokens for the week, you’ll need to wait to get a new allotment on Monday at 12:01AM Eastern Time.
Big Library Read
May 15 - June 1
Overdrive is offering unlimited access to this month’s Big Library Read book The Four Corners of the Sky by Michael Malone. A novel of love, secrets, and the mysterious bonds of families. Malone brings characters to life as only he can, exploring the questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to others…or a gift we give ourselves?
What is the Big Library Read?
A free global book club where thousands of participants in the US, North America and 25 other countries will read one book simultaneously.
The program is sponsored by OverDrive, with initial support and participation from Sourcebooks, Inc., a leading US independent publisher, and made possible due to the generous donation of the title from the author, Michael Malone.
