See the World!Yes, we are a passport application acceptance facility! We can submit your application for a new adult passport, a child's passport, or the renewal of a passport issued more than 15 years ago.
Note: To renew an expired passport that is less than 15 years old, you don't need to come in. You may file for the renewal through the mail.
When applying for a passport with us, you need to bring all the documents listed here with you -- and don't forget your checkbook for the application fees. We don't accept plastic.
This service is by appointment only. Please call ahead at 382-6011.

Then we'll revisit the scariest night of radio -- Orson Welles' broadcast of The War of the Worlds -- originally aired almost 80 years ago on October 30, 1938.
Register here and save your seat on this time machine to the days of future past!
Join our Book Club(s)!
On the second Wednesday of every month, the library hosts two book club meetings.
We've got Morning Book Club at 10:30AM with Kelli, and Evening Book Club at 6:30PM with Scott. We all read the same book -- and we get extra copies, so you can share in the fun even if you don't come to the discussion groups. We do modern fiction, historical fiction, non-fiction, biographies -- you name it, we'll try it!
Book Club is a great way to meet new people from town, or just read something outside of your usual stuff. Join us!
