Passport Applications

PASSPORT CENTER HOURS 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM  MONDAY - FRIDAY

The following items are needed to apply for a passport:

  1. A completed DS-11 Form. We have blank forms available for applicants to complete at the library, but they are also available online. Each applicant can print a blank form and fill it out (in black ink only) before they arrive, which will save the applicant time. Here is the link for the form.

  2. A certified copy of applicant's birth certificate. It should include the applicants parents' names and have a registrar's raised, embossed, impressed, or multicolored seal.
  3. If the applicant wants to renew an old passport, they can submit the old passport instead of a certified copy of their birth certificate.
  4. A 2" x 2"  passport photo with a white or light gray background. Photos must be in color and front view of the applicant. We take passport photos in our library for a $15.00 fee.
  5. A current driver's license, government issued identification, or a previous passport.
