Providence Public Library will host a Passport Day on Friday, November 1. U.S. citizens planning international travel may apply for their passports at the Library between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.
Passport agents will be in the Library’s Teen Room (Ground Level) at 150 Empire Street, Providence, during these hours to process applications for individuals and families and answer any questions about the passport process. They will also be able to take passport photos for a fee of $10. The cost of the passport is the same as at the Post Office, however, proceeds will benefit the Rhode Island Family Literacy Initiative’s (RIFLI) adult literacy classes.
Applicants need to bring proof of citizenship (an original or certified copy of Birth Certificate or a Naturalization Certificate; an expired passport is also acceptable for proof of citizenship), a valid photo ID (for adults – a driver’s license is best), and a personal check or money order. Detailed information on the documents required, as well as payment information, can be found at http://pawtucketlibrary.org/passport-acceptance-office.htm. The Department of State’s website also offers complete information about the passport application process: www.travel.state.gov.
