Ways to complete your form:

Can I renew? (PDF)    |    How To Renew (PDF)

Renewals CANNOT be handled by the Library although someone can help you fill out your form if you need help. If you have a passport that was issued less than 15 years ago and you were at least 16 years old when it was issued, a self-service renewal by mail is likely the correct option. Visit travel.state.gov’s “Passport Renewal” page to confirm that renewal by mail is appropriate.

Note: If your last passport was issued when you were under 16, you will need to fill out a new DS-11 form. The Library accepts appointments for this form.

LTPL does not do passport photos. Please visit a local Walgreens or CVS for passport photos before you visit the Library. Photo tips:

  1. Submit one color photo
  2. Submit a recent photo taken in last 6 months
  3. Use a clear image of your face
  4. Do not change your photo using computer software, phone apps or filters, or artificial intelligence
  5. Have someone else take your photo. No selfies.
  6. Take off your eyeglasses for your photo
  7. Use a white or off-white background without shadows, texture, or lines
