Concert Series

The Library’s 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.
