The Friends of the Library will offer home-baked sweet treats and drinks for sale. In case of inclement weather, concerts will be held indoors, in Classroom AB on the main floor.

The Library’s summer concert series is generously sponsored by the Friends of Waukegan Public Library. The Friends of the Library raise funds throughout the year through their book sale, available every day the Library is open; sale of select materials on Amazon; two major book sale events in the fall and spring; and with sweet treats sold during the concerts, as well as through memberships and gifts. The Friends of the Library also support numerous other events throughout the year.

Want to get involved with the Friends? They are friendly, fun and always looking for new volunteers to help support their work. Click here for our volunteer application form. We’ll connect you with the Friends to get you started.
