We do passports

Planning a trip? We're here for you! We have the information, materials, and resources to help you plan your next vacation. We are a full service Passport Acceptance Agency, which means we can take your photo, assist in filling out the forms, and then file the paperwork with the Department of State.  Our Passport Acceptance Agency Services are available only at Main Library.  No appointment necessary!

Passports fees
