“DC Public Library To Process New Passport Applications”

901 G Street, NW

From a press release:

Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 17, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library will accept new passport applications on behalf of the U.S. Department of State. The Library Passport Acceptance Center will be open Tuesday through Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The opening of the Passport Acceptance Center follows the D.C. Public Library developing regulations that allow it to generate revenue through non-library activities. For a $25 fee, the Library will process applications for passport books that allow travel to any country and passport cards that allow travel from U.S. to Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda.

Passport Book (cost does not include Library processing fee)

· Age 16 and older: regular (mailed in 4 to 6 weeks) $110; expedited (mailed in 3 to 4 weeks) $170

· Age 15 and younger: regular (mailed in 4 to 6 weeks) $80; expedited (mailed in 3 to 4 weeks) $140

Passport Card (cost does not include Library processing fee)

· Age 16 and older: regular (mailed in 4 to 6 weeks) $30; expedited (mailed in 3 to 4 weeks) $90

· Age 15 and younger: regular (mailed in 4 to 6 weeks) $15; expedited (mailed in 3 to 4 weeks) $75

The fee for the application is payable to the U.S. Department of State by check or money order. In addition to the Library’s $25 processing fee, Passport Acceptance Center staff can also take passport photos for an additional $15 fee. Library fees are payable to the DC Treasurer by check or money order.

To have a passport application processed, customers will need to bring a completed passport application form DS-11, proof of U.S. citizenship and photo identification. In the Passport Acceptance Center, Library staff will ask about the kind of passport the customer needs and how soon they need it. The staff reviews the paperwork and takes the applicant’s photo if they have not brought one. The completed application is sent to the Department of State for approval.

While no appointment is necessary, the time required to complete the application process may cause wait times. Customers who cannot be seen right away will be given a pager and encouraged to explore the library.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library is located at 901 G St. NW, near the Metro Center and Gallery Place Metro Stations. All applicants must be present. The DC Public Library does not accept passport renewals and does not process emergency passports that are needed in less than three weeks.
