Passports

We are an official Passport Acceptance Facility, accepting DS-11 applications for new passports.

While the library is closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, we can't process passports. When we resume normal service, we will post hours and procedures here. 

Learn more about passport renewal and what is needed when you come to the library.

Fees

There are two fees: an application fee and an execution fee. For detailed fee information, visit the State Department website.

 The application fee should be made to the U.S. Department of State by check, money order, certified check, or cashier's check. Passport Services strongly advises that each individual application has a separate form of payment for any fees payable to the U.S. Department of State.

The execution fee of $35 can be paid to the Indian Prairie Public Library by check, cash, money order, or credit card.

Important Information

The library does not have access to information regarding the status of your application. For detailed timing information, visit the State Department website.

If you are traveling within two weeks or need a foreign visa within four weeks, you should make an appointment at a passport agency or center. The passport agency or center will specify when you will get your new passport. See Get a Passport in a Hurry.

The library does not renew passports. To renew a 10-year adult passport, visit the State Department website and download form DS-82 along with the instructions. We also have these forms available at the library.
