Passport Services

 

Passport Services at the Library:

Do you need a new* U.S. Passport?  Is your existing passport more than 15 years old?  Are you changing from a passport for a minor (under age 16) to a passport for an adult (age 16 and over)?  If so, come to the library to process your new* passport application.

*Please note that renewals can only be processed through the U.S. Postal Service.
