Get Your Passports at the Library

Calvert Library extends your travel horizons

      Libraries have long booked our travels in time and space. Now you can not only check out books about dream destinations and browse the Mango Languages learning app. You can also get your passport to travel the world at Calvert Library in Prince Frederick. The library is now a State Department-approved passport acceptance facility.

         Applicants — including children and infants — must be physically present with a complete unsigned application, an original birth certificate, a recent two-inch square color photograph with a white background, Naturalization Certificate, previous passport, Permanent Resident Card and current driver’s license or other identification. Separate fees for Department of State and the library apply. U.S. citizens may apply for passports MTuTh 3pm-7pm, W 10am-7pm, and Sa 9am-3pm.

         “We know people visit the library for their international travel planning already,” says Calvert Library Executive Director Carrie Willson. “It makes sense to add passport services, especially since we can offer hours outside those offered by the post office.”
