Dear Patrons, we are closing both the main library and Hinkston Branch locations. We are closing as a precaution for the public and our staff due to COVID-19. This is not due to any known exposure. We will be closed until further notice. Please keep checking our website for updates.
Welcome! We are glad you are a part of our community. Learn more about your Waukegan Public Library below:
A community that is always learning and discovering
Adopted by the Board of Trustees in 2014, the library’s vision is for a community that recognizes the importance of learning and is invested in its success. To foster this kind of environment, the library is committed to maintaining active community engagement to ensure that our classes, programming, collection, library services, and exhibits are continuously reevaluated to ensure that it is relevant to the community’s literacy, learning, and discovery needs. Additionally, the library will work to help patrons recognize the ways in which literacy is essential to their lives, as well as to broaden horizons and provide unique, enriching experiences.
To provide the path to empower and support learning and discovery
Adopted by the Board of Trustees in 2014, the library’s mission statement encompasses the ways the library plans to work towards its vision: by delivering creative, innovative, and relevant classes, programming, and library services to support and enrich the community.
